Joe McKnight's Family: Killer Deserves Life In Prison
1/29/2018 1:18 PM PST
We spoke with Michelle Quick -- who dated Joe back in the day and stayed on close, good terms with him over the years as they co-parented their son, Jaiden.
"He never needs to walk the streets ever again," Quick tells us ... "I think the proper sentence is life in prison. He never needs to be out in society."
Gasser is 56-years-old -- so the maximum 40-year sentence would essentially serve a life sentence.
McKnight's son Jaiden -- with the permission of his mother -- told us he loves and misses his father tremendously and in our video he explains why his dad was the best ever.References^ Joe McKnight (www.tmz.com)^ Ronald Gasser (www.tmz.com)^ facing up to 40 years (www.tmz.com)
