    FL - Megan Pratt, 3, Brooksville, Sept 1991

    I found this case while looking up another one. This is sad, How appauling that the mother did nothing and tried to hide the girls death. She apparantly had several other children too.

    10 years later, Mom took a plea deal and the last I heard back in 2004 the step-dad had been arrested and was in custody. Does anyone have an update on this case?

    I found this, apparantly step-dad is in prison until 2018. I assume het got such a short sentence due to the fact they have no body. What a loser. He deserved the death penalty.

    Poor kid, she looks strikingly like my niece did at her age (she was also born in 1988)

    As for the short sentence it's actually considered longer than average for second-degree murder, in many states par for the course is 10 years unless it's aggravated by priors involving violence. Intent to kill was almost impossible to prove in this case so we're lucky he got 14 years at least. Another plus is that it's going to be 14 rough years for a child killer.

    Unless a link is included, anything I say, is my opinion and my opinion only. It may not be the truth as others see it, but I do have the right to my opinion.
