A Stroke Of Fate Gets Man 25 Years In Prison But It Was Worth It
Shane Goldsby was found guilty of murder after beating his cellmate to death. Goldsby was shocked to learn that the man he shared a bunk with was the child rapist that had previously attacked his sister.
Before his sentencing was handed down, Goldsby read from a statement, “I cannot imagine what it would be like to lose a loved one in this kind of way. To his wife and his whole family, I apologize. I am so sorry and I hope you are able to heal from what I caused.”
Robert Munger, 70, sustained a skull fracture with brain contusions as a result of the attack inside the Airway Heights Corrections Center. Munger died in the hospital three days later where the Spokane County Medical Examiner confirmed the official cause of death.
According to court documents, Goldsby struck Munger in the face and head 14 times, stomped on his head at least four times, and kicked him a few more times before being taken into custody by Airway Heights Corrections Guards.
Goldsby told KHQ-TV that Munger told him the disturbing details of the abuses he had inflicted on his young victims. That’s when Goldsby realized that Munger was the man that had hurt his little sister.
“I was in shock,” he said. “I was like, ‘what the f***?’… This stuff doesn’t happen. You’re talking the same institution, the same unit, the same pod in the same cell as this dude. That’s like hitting the jackpot in the casino seven times.”
Munger was found guilty in 2019 and sentenced to 43 years for his involvement in various child sex abuse cases, including. that of Goldsby’s little sister.
