I think the term "stepfather" should be used when the father is dead or not in the lives of the children. If the father is still around, then the mother has a boyfriend or husband, but the kids do not have a stepfather.

The man murdered his sons and then killed himself because he was severely mentally ill or because he was purely evil. Speculating about custody issues cheapens their deaths.
When you forcibly remove children from parents, a certain percentage will snap. They are mentally ill in that most people would not snap under that strain, but ignoring the proximate cause of that snap is disingenuous.

In this particular case, why is the "stepfather" using the term "coward"? I find that very interesting.
