KY - Ashley Lyons, 18, pregnant, shot to death, 7 Jan 2004
A 20-year old Scott County woman yesterday pleaded guilty to complicity charges related to the murder of a pregnant Scott County teenager. Minutes later, she said she wasn’t sure why.
As Dena M. Williams stood in front of Judge Robert Johnson in Scott Circuit Court, he asked her if she was pleading guilty to charges of complicity to murder and complicity to tampering with physical evidence because she was, in fact, guilty.
She hesitated; and as her attorney leaned in, she muttered, “Yes.”
Williams’ plea was part of deal she reached with prosecutors to avoid her trial, which was scheduled to start Sept. 15. Under the deal, Williams will spend 20 years in prison and be required to serve 85 percent of the term. She is not eligible for probation.

Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
