RIVERSIDE - Michelle Curran was 16 when she was kidnapped from her Las Vegas neighborhood in late March 2001.

Two weeks later, her nude body was discovered inside a horse trailer in Rubidoux. She had been tied up, sexually assaulted and shot in the head.

On Thursday, Michelle's family and friends reminded a packed courtroom that she was a girl with dreams. She was the niece who died before she got her driver's license, attended a prom or graduated from high school. Michelle was the would-be maid of honor at her lone sister's wedding.

Riverside judge PaulZellerbach listened to the statements, then sentenced the girl's killers to death.

Earlier this year, separate juries convicted a Rialto couple, Michael Forrest Thornton, 50, a one-time hair salon owner, and Janeen Marie Snyder, 26, of murder. They also determined the couple was eligible for the death penalty for kidnapping and torture.

In May 2006, the juries recommended Thornton and Snyder be sentenced to die.

Zellerbach said that after reviewing the evidence and reading the transcripts of the almost six-months trial, he agreed.

The judge who sentenced Michael Forrest Thornton to death Thursday labeled him the leader in the killing of Michelle Curran.

The defendants held Michelle Curran captive during a 14-day period, gave her drugs, intimidated her with firearms and sexually exploited her, Zellerbach said.

The Curran assault marked one in what authorities believed to be a long string of attacks.

The judge mentioned other girls whom the couple had been suspected of stalking and assaulting, evidence that came out during the penalty phase of the trial.

Zellerbach said there was some validity to Snyder's defense attorneys' argument that their client was dominated by Thornton at a very young age.

"It is also clear to the court that Mr. Thornton was the leader, if one wants to characterize it as that, but that Miss Snyder was a willing and voluntary participant," Zellerbach said. "She was not merely a puppet or a pawn."

Though she had been dominated by Michael Thornton, Janeen Marie Snyder was not merely a puppet or pawn, said the judge who sentenced her to death Thursday.

Zellerbach said that Thornton used Snyder as the lure or bait for young girls to participate in the sexual sadism that would follow. Curran's last moments were especially brutal. She was tied to rafters by both her hands and her feet and violated.

"It was Miss Snyder who ultimately approached Miss Curran in this very vulnerable position, put the gun to her forehead and pulled the trigger," Zellerbach said.

Before the sentencing, family members choked back tears as they read prepared statements or offered impromptu messages to the defendants. The judge warned a few people to direct the comments to him. Candy Curran, the victim's mother, said she had waited six years for this moment, but she struggled as she tried to speak. Her sentences were short, hindered by moments of crying.

Later, outside the courtroom, Curran said that Michelle's friends and relatives expressed her feelings better than she had herself. Curran squeezed a Dalmatian she has kept with her to honor the daughter who loved the breed so much.

An uncle, Richard Curran, told the judge, "I can't even look at these people. They disgust me." Then, to Thornton, Curran blurted: "You low-life scumbag."

His brother, Richard Curran, grieved for the niece who never got the opportunity to graduate from high school.

"You're looking downward," he told the defendants. "That's where they'll be going."

The case struck a nerve with both jury panels. Almost every juror returned to hear the judge's sentences, a fact Zellerbach touched on before his decisions.

Juror Suzanne Davis, of Temecula, said she wanted the closure.

She said the trial plucked her from her life into a life "that you want no part of."

It's cases like this that really make me feel that the DP has a place in sentencing.  The sheer cruelty of what these two did to a young girl.

How can one feel any sympathy for people like this? If anyone deserves to be executed, it is this sort of killer. I vote to terminate their existence as they have snuffed out a precious young life simply to satisfy their own perverted lusts.

Punish the guilty - protect the innocent - but be careful before you make up your mind!

I am a friend of the Janeen. And while i agree what she did was wrong I also feel that if a 13yr old is being abused sexually and physically by a man more the twice her age, how is it possible we dont see her as a victim to? I agree she could have said stop, or ran but I also know what abuse and stoock holm syndrom can do to a person.

as just a observer (i have seen the documentary an this case)i think both michelle and janeen are victoms. janeen needs punishment for the fact that she could have refused to co-operate with this man.however death penalty is to much for some one that is a victom too.
