    Mourners met at Vernor and Ferris in Detroit, where Benton’s empty purse was found by a homeless man, and walked several blocks to Pitt and Norman, where the car she was driving, a 1995 green Dodge Neon, was found late Sept. 26.

    Benton, who has four sons, was five-and-a-half months pregnant with a daughter...

    This case was on Primetime Justice on HLN tonight. One of the killers was smiling in court. Disgusting.

    Amanda's dad called into the show.
