Sorry 'bout that, hon. I didn't mean to kill you.

This is a follow-up to a story I posted HERE about some drunken tweeker that accidently Xed out his old lady with a little friendly fire incident.

Calif. man in 'cannon' death says he's 'so sorry'
EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) -- A man charged with murder for firing a cannon-like device that killed his girlfriend said in a jailhouse interview Friday that he wants a time machine to go back and keep from firing it, and he wishes he'd been the one killed instead.

"I'm just so sorry, if I could just go back in time I would've never done it," Richard Dale Fox told NBC San Diego (http://bit.ly/xJLteN ) through tears. "I just wish that the damn thing had hit me instead of her, you know?"

Fox, 39, was drinking with friends in the San Diego County town of Potrero on Tuesday when he set off the device, sending shrapnel into his trailer that killed 38-Jeanette Ogara, who was his girlfriend and the mother of his 4-year-old daughter, prosecutors said.

In addition to murder, Fox was charged Thursday with exploding a destructive device and with child endangerment, because the little girl was also in the trailer. She was not hurt.

He pleaded not guilty to all three charges.

"My concern now is my daughter," Fox said in the interview. "I mean, I know she's OK now, but what am I going to tell her?"

What the fuck kind of system do we have where a motherfucker gets drunk, shoots off a cannon, kills his woman, destroys his trailer, admits it and apologizes for it and then pleads NOT GUILTY??? 

Hey, check this shit out: If you're really truly sorry, how 'bout you man the fuck up and plead guilty and accept the consequences of your actions? Even if it was just bad judgement on your part, you deserve to spend the rest of your life in prison - I damned sure don't want your stupid ass driving the same streets as me and my family after what you did to yours.
