Maybe I'm thinking this way because the initial shock of this story is over, but I think he should be the subject of psychological studies and tests. Meaning, to understand how and why someone could do something like this, exactly how are their brains wired to be like this, how can they lack empathy and so on.

I know it probably sounds absurdly kind, but I think if it were possible to stop this from happening again, or probably cure psychopaths, I think psychiatrists should get started on finding ways to do so, and start with him.

And once every test and study is done, lock him away and throw away the key. In the very cell he put his poor daughter in

Exactly. Because the thought that anyone, just any average joe, could do this is terrifying but sadly true.
What happened to that man to make him want to do that to someone? Nevermind the fact it was his daughter.

When you're 18, it's not that uncommon to think that.

When you start approaching 30 or so, perhaps, you might realize that, while events like these are truly terrible, a cursory glance at history would reveal that, as a whole, our world is not all that bad. We've seen far, far worse than this in our history. We've progressed substantially since the Middle Ages or even the 19th century, where horrible civil rights abuses were the norm, rather than the exception.
