Yup, I agree with the judge. This daddy had no human soul. KHENAN CLARKE doused his pregnant ex-girlfriend with gasoline and set her on fire. There were two kids in the apartment, one that was "his." Do you think it made any difference to this piece of sh** that he had a DNA link to the one? Nah.

A Queens judge threw the book — a 100-year-sentence — at a 26-year-old father today who set fire to his pregnant ex-girlfriend and the Long Island City apartment where their son and another tot were trapped by the flames.
"Prisons are made for people like you," Queens State Supreme Court Justice Michael Aloise told Khenan Clarke. "You have no heart or soul."
Clarke was convicted in April of arson, three counts of attempted murder, assault and burglary for setting Latisha Shaw on fire and dousing her with gasoline as she fled screaming in the Nov. 15, 2009 attack.
A neighbor armed with a knife frightened Clarke off. Shaw and Clarke’s son Jaden, 4, and Shaw’s other son Ahshi, 3, were rescued.
"How can someone human be so evil to their own child?" Shaw said tearfully in a victim impact statement. "We are grateful that the monster my son calls his father will be locked up today."
Shaw spent a month in the hospital with third degree burns and had skin graft surgery.
Before hearing his sentence, Clarke told the court, "I regret what I’ve done, but I’ll wait for my opportunity for my appeal to prove my innocence."
"No amount of jail time is going to rehabilitate this guy," the judge said. "He will never see the light of day again."
