    NC - Princess King, 3, shot to death on Goldsboro playground, 27 Feb 2011

    He shot 3-year-old Princess King in her apartment complex. He claims he was aiming for someone else and missed hitting the girl. Best's father states that he thinks he safe now that he's behind bars. Yeah, he's safe for now because he's probably isolated, but wait until he goes into the general population.

    The judge listed Bestís charges, including outstanding warrants for separate crimes that included kidnapping and assault by strangulation, among others.

    Oh boy. That will not be the end of that violence. Maybe he's safe, but you have to wonder how safe his family and friends are.

    Shooting people while kids are around.

    Poor little girl.

    Suspect pleads in child's shooting

    http://www.newsargus.com/news/archiv...ilds_shooting/

    More than four years after firing the stray bullet that claimed the life of 3-year-old Princess Shelby King, her killer pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Wayne County Superior Court Thursday.

    Derrick Raymont Best, now 33, will spend 180 to 225 months in prison.

    According to court records, Best has 1,632 days of jail credit -- the amount of time he served in jail awaiting trial -- to his advantage.

    That means Princess' killer will serve between 11 and 15 years in prison.

    As part of his plea agreement, Best admitted to firing the bullet that went stray of its target, finding instead a toddler on a swing in the Grand at Day Circle housing community in February 2011. She was shot on the housing project playground and died a short time later at Wayne Memorial Hospital.
