A man who smothered and raped a 6-year-old girl at a slumber party was spared the death penalty Tuesday and sentenced to life in prison, but faces new charges that he smuggled a homemade knife into the courthouse.

Testimony is now underway in the trial of a man who is accused of raping and killing a 6-year old girl. Her name was Destiny Wright and she disappeared from a sleepover party and was later found dead in an overgrown lot.

The man convicted of raping and murdering 6-year-old Destiny Wright of Kensington is "a very disturbed young man," a psychologist testified yesterday in support of attempts by defense lawyers to keep Abdul Malik El-Shabazz off death row.
Although the city's schools, juvenile courts and the Department of Human Services had had repeated contact with El-Shabazz and his family since the 20-year-old Kensington man was born addicted to heroin, New Jersey psychologist Edward J. Dougherty told jurors he never got the help he desperately needed

I know many won't agree with me; however, this is exactly the type of case that the DP is made for. This guy will never be rehabilitated and he will probably kill again.
So sad. Such a waste of a young child, and sad for the perp too. What a shame.
