It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell'[...]Thomas is accused in the March 26 stabbing deaths of his 4-year-old son, his 20-year-old estranged wife and her 1-year-old daughter. All the victims' hearts were cut out; two were found at Andre Thomas' house. He turned himself in and was charged with one count of capital murder."

It must suck, after all of that, to discover that you misinterpreted the Bible verse... After all, I'm pretty sure he didn't stab his son, daughter, and wife with his eye.
