EJ lived, Trent wasn't so lucky.

Drug dependency is not an excuse for murder even if the victim was a low life thug who tried to pimp out his own daughter.
Maybe in real life but this is soap. Remember that both Marlena and Kate shot at EJ but nothing happened to them. Lucas got off after a few months in prison. Stephanie and Chelsea got off with Ford after having him buried twice and Max only got community service.
It's gonna make me furious that the show decides for ONCE to punish the one guy who has tended to be more good then bad on his worst day into prison for killing a horrible guy WHILE he was under the influence of drugs.
Plus they could also try to do a mental illness. Someone else pointed out that they've already setup for this, Nick saying in the jailcell about his DUI he felt like it wasn't him.
Also, with Ford, they didn't set out to kill him. Ford died because he tripped and fell.
I'm just saying that if Nick is the killer, they need more than drug dependency to be the reason for his crime. Like self-defense or in defense of another or accidental.
