    Are you serious how could you really say i hope he gets paroled soon? He needs to rot in prison or better yet someone needs to do to him what he did to her.No one is perfect by no means but no she didnt deserve to die because she was trying to leave him. It states in the reports that she did try leaving and he would let her alone. Crime of passion - he didnt walk in on her sleeping with someone else they were aruing, that nuts. I feel sorry for her parents and her children. I definatly would not let her children around him ever again!!!

    Sorry to post on old news, but I knew Amber in high school and only just now found out about this. Whoever thinks that 15 years is too much for KILLING SOMEONE needs to re-evaluate their moral standards. People don't always make the best choices, and sometimes they stick with the wrong people, but for someone to lose their life at the hands of another... nothing can compensate for that. Rest in Peace, Amber.

    SHE wasn't innocent and neither was he, but he certainly didn't deserve 15 years for what he did. Crime of passion between 2 people that wouldn't separate. Appears she must have liked him, she never left. And no crap about battered women, get a backbone and leave- especially for your kids if it's that bad- I did. As for Noal, hopefuly parole soon with good behavior. I wish you all the best Quattlebaum family and Noal- I know you are all good people. And as for the raising of the child, the only true love they'll get is from Mark and Felicia so keep them there. Amber's mother just wants a show she can star in, she isn't interested in those kids or she would have had them before. Good luck noal.

    I feel so bad for the young women and her family and daughter. No, I don't think his family should raise her. He was her ex, her family should. You say her Mom tried to break them up. You think that was mean? I wish it happen sooner. Then her girl would not be with out a MOM. Maybe Amber's Mother saw some thing in Noal that others did not. It is not judging him to say he is a murder. It is just the truth. Some people don't think you should face it. That is the person and who he is, not just what he did. I can not believe people can over look, this is a murder of his girl's Mother. What is people saying. Oh, it is not that bad, he is a good guy. He feels bad, he is so sorry. What?? What is wrong with people.

    So anonymous you think that parent's who raised a son that killed another human being shouldn't be aloud to raise their little granddaughter, their own flesh and blood! And who do you propose take on that feat? Amber's mother?? Oh my God, do you know that woman? Do you know the hell she put Amber thru everytime she came around, and the trouble she enstigated between Noal and Amber every chance she got. Mark and Felica are the only capable people to raise that child. And I'm positive that they would make sure that the girls spent as much time together as possible to form a strong bond to help them thru coping with the loss of their mother. I don't know a whole lot of things but I do know that I would never hesitate to leave my precious grandchildren with Mark and Felica anytime of the day or night.

    I just want to know how anyone can say this was an accident! How do you put a belt around someones neck and strangle them to death and then say, Opps it was an accident. I'm sure when he did it he meant it, only afterwards did the full impact of the crime hit him. Just because "he didn't mean to do it" doesn't excuse the actions. If a drunk driver hits and kills someone after several DUIs would we show them mercy? I think not. This is sad. I do feel for his parents, but at least they can go visit their son in prison, Amber's loved ones only have a grave to visit. And his parents should NOT have her kids, which at least one of them isn't even their grandchild. So what if they babysat 4 days a week while their mom worked. In my opinion they have no business raising her daughters, after all they did raise a woman beating murderer.

    Amen "D" - let's hear it for Noal's parents!! They are the one's that have cared, night and day for those little girls since before July 22. Carol pretty much said in her victim impact statement she would spend every waking moment tormenting those children by telling them how THAT MAN killed their mother when they were babies. Wonder if a transcript of that shouldn't be sent to Juvenile Court before a determination is made about custody.

    Hate the sin not the sinner, thou shalt not kill, obey God's laws and the law of men: These are are fundemental, we have been taught thourghout our lives from church and society, I am glad that He has made this situation less prolonged but not fighting and admitting his wrong doing. I believe that he is on the right tract to forgiveness, but that is strictly between him and God. The families involved on all sides are suffering in their own respect, if it is the death of a mother, a displaced son, a lost daughter, or a friend gone, but the best thing that any person could do is to be thankful for the time thay had with Amber and loking forward to the great future that those two beautiful daughters still have and that she lives through them. It should not be about where they are living, but that they are happy, healthy, and loved. Any person who thinks different should see the great homes that these children already have and know that mom is not replaced but there is no shortage of love.

    another thing to add... God may fogive him, but God also says to obey the rules of the land.. and that means if you commit murder, you pay the full price. God also says, Thou Shalt not murder.. so this man deserves anything that comes his way. Several people I kno are involved in the law, and this guy was let off easy!! Poor kids! And quit giving the mother crap, she may not have been the best mother, but she still is the mother and she is still allowed to cry over losing a daughter. No human being takes that type of pain easily. Best of wishes to the family.. and to the little children. and to the man that killed her.. you have no idea what men in prison do to people who kill innocent women!! You are about to find out! FIRST HAND!!.. enjoy!!!
