Sherry West we leave it to the law to determine the facts in any case. This case has a foul odor it stinks. A child is dead, you did nothing to protect your child? Two teens are being charged with such a cruel act, the conversation of gun control, the conversation of teens and guns in the atmosphere. Mental illness is also in the conversation.
When I read your story (CNN)the first thought came to mind:
Susan Leigh Vaughan Smith (born September 26, 1971) is an American woman sentenced to life in prison for murdering her children. Born in Union, South Carolina, and a former student of the University of South Carolina Union, she was convicted on July 22, 1995 for murdering her two sons, 3-year-old Michael Daniel Smith, born October 10, 1991, and 14-month-old Alexander Tyler Smith, born August 5, 1993. The case gained worldwide attention shortly after it developed, due to her claiming that a black man stole her car and kidnapped her sons. She later claimed that she suffered from mental health issues that impaired her judgment.
According to the South Carolina Department of Corrections, Smith will be eligible for parole on November 4, 2024, after serving a minimum of thirty years. She is incarcerated at South Carolina’s Leath Correctional Institution, near Greenwood
