Blowtorch killer guilty

‘ A mother wept in court yesterday as she told a judge how she wakes each day to the horrific reality that her mentally handicapped daughter was tortured to death with a blowtorch.

“You have left horrible images in my mind,” Deborah Laramey said in a hushed courtroom as she looked at the man convicted of killing her daughter, Katlin Cousineau, on Nov. 12, 2005.

Sitting in the prisoner’s box, Matthew Sitte, 25, of Midland, darted his eyes away from the mother as he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. [..]

Throughout the torture, Sitte would throw rubbing alcohol onto her body.

“The torching was persistent and prolonged,” said Williams. “It is horrific.”‘
