Man sentenced to death in Casey Williamson killing:

"A judge sentenced Johnny Johnson today to die for beating of 6-year-old Cassandra "Casey'' Williamson with bricks and a rock in an abandoned glass factory in Valley Park.

"This was perhaps the most heinous crime I have had occasion to preside over in my 10 years on the bench,'' said St. Louis County Circuit Judge Mark D. Seigel in imposing the jury-recommended sentence. "There are no winners here, only losers, and the biggest loser is Casey.''

I know Casey's mother and two of her aunts. I'm glad this case is finally closed. They will never have complete closure, but at least the trial is finished and this creep won't be back on the street.

Casey Williamson was just six years old when she was taken from her family and brutally killed. By now, she would be 18. And as her classmates at Valley Park High School move on to the next big stage in their lives they say, they're taking a piece of her with them.

They had a celebration Saturday in her honor. It was a reminder of just how much was loved. But also, a tragic reminder of what could have been.
