He also carried some of his son's toys in his pickup truck for the same reason. He took some victims to his house and often showed them his son's room to demonstrate they had nothing to fear.

However, not long after being married Hansen was arrested for arson of a school bus garage and served twenty months in prison during which time his wife divorced him .

Tison v. Arizona, 481 U.S. 137 (1987), is a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court qualified the rule it set forth in Enmund v. Florida.
