    Police say man shot himself to end misery after slaying gone awry
    Basalt, CO, (AP)- Police said a man trying to kill a woman accidentally set himself on fire and then shot himself in the face with a rifle to end his misery.
    The man, John Kenworthy, 50, also had about 20 rounds of ammunition that ignited and "cooked off," sending shrapnel into his body as it lay burning outside a duplex Saturday morning, Basalt Sgt. Mark Langford said.
    "He was there to do evil." Langford said, adding Kenworthy may have been planning a murder suicide.
    "The first part was unsuccessful and he basically caught himself on fire...it is the wrinkle that caused him the problem that then caused him to not want to burn anymore," Langford said.
    Investigators pieced the scenario based on evidence at the scene. There were no witnesses to Kenworthy's catching himself afire, or his gunshot wound.

    Not a great loss to society

    Any life lost is tragic but people like this are better removed permanently from society before doing harm to others.

    Probably not a great asset to the human gene pool.

    No doubt!
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
