Tyler was an eleven year-old boy who was tied to a tree as punishment and died from dehydration.

His father has already taken an Alford plea and his stepmother is set to go to trial on July 6th. Many familiar with the case believe that justice is not being done in this case and have set up a petition to be delivered to the judge in the case.

If you have forgotten the details in the case, you can read my post and the comments about the case here (http://www.flutterbyewings.com/murder/tyler-gene-mcmillan):


The link to the petition is here (http://www.petitiononline.com/abused3/petition-sign.html)

Thank you to all who read this and respond to the petition.:clap:

Tyler's stepmother has been allowed to enter an Alford plea and has been sentenced to 13-16 years for second degree murder in the death of the eleven year-old.

This was a very sad case of horrible abuse and the perpetrators were allowed to plead to lesser charges and avoid going to trial. It is a shame that these abusers were given relatively light sentences for such a heinous crime.

Thank you to all who signed the petition which called for the stepmother to be prosecuted rather than be allowed to plead out. At least the judge and DA will know that the public is not pleased with the handling of this case. Hopefully these elected officials will be voted out of office because of their actions or inactions regarding Tyler's death.
