Examples of Roderick in a Sentence

  1. Bob Harrison:

    For the past 26 years there have been times when Bob and I have felt compassion for Roderick Nunley, Taylor and their families only to remember how frightened Ann must have been, the total fear she felt when she was bound and unable to defend herself while listening to them discuss how they were going to kill her. The pain she felt when they stabbed her, not once, but at least 10 times. That is the true definition of unusual pain and suffering. The only closure that our family will have is knowing that justice for Ann has been attained and that we are finally through with the judicial system.

  2. Roderick L. Evans:
