The District Attorney says he was surprised, but Blainey had already told officials he wanted to go back to prison.
Eyewitness News wanted your view on Blainey's court appearance.
Utica Residents that Eyewitness News spoke with Friday night say they are absolutely disgusted by Blainey's crimes.
A main concern with a North Utica resident was that someone so dangerous killed someone right across the street from his own home.
North Utica residents say it's a safe neighborhood, and still two months later, Linday Turner's death has people talking.
"It's disgusting, and I can't believe somebody would be proud of doing that to someone. He's probably bragging about it. I'm sure he's very proud about what he's done and I hope he rots in jail for a very long time," said Utica resident, Kathy Todaro.
"With an individual like that, that has no remorse, they don't deserve to be treated the same way as other people do. We shouldn't have to pay out of our taxpayers dollars to have him stay in prison," said North Utica resident Dwayne Dery.
"For him to be not remorseful, he'll probably get when he deserves when he goes to jail. He's going to have three meals a day, and a roof over his head, and for us to bare that burden for the rest of his life, maybe we need to look at the death penalty a little bit more closer," said another North Utica resident, Michael Sayles.
Sayles also said he believes there are more people out there like Blainey who should be locked away.
