    Rest in peace sweet baby girl. Stories like these make me so angry I can hardly stand it. People like her should not be allowed to have children! I hope she pays in this life and the next.

    Coincidentally, I was on a JonBenet Ramsey thread yesterday. This is one of the theories about what happened to her. That her mother lost it when JonBenet wet the bed again and hit her hard enough for her to fall and hit her head.

    Pair to go to prison in death of 3-year-old girl
    Friday, August 26, 2011

    Butts, the godmother, entered an Alford plea, meaning she maintains her innocence but acknowledges that taking her case to trial would likely result in a conviction. For practical purposes, she is considered guilty in the eyes of the law.

    Cunningham pleaded guilty.

    The court treats the two pleas the same, and each woman faces 20 years to life in prison on the charge.

    snip

    "The child had bruises, contusions, scrapes, swelling to her entire body," Gordon said. "The only parts of this child's body that were spared were the soles of her feet and her armpits."

    Summerville women face 20 years to life in child’s beating death

    The 3-year-old girl, Serenity Richardson, died from blunt force trauma that investigators determined had taken place over a two-week visit with Butts, her godmother, according to assistant solicitor Elizabeth Gordon.

    “The only parts of this child’s body that were spared were the soles of her feet and her armpits,” Gordon said.

    I was reading back over past articles on the net about this case. One said Serenity died from full-body blunt force trauma. I didn't even know there was such a thing.

    Rest in peace, Serenity Richardson.

    Oh BeanE, I love that picture! What a little princess she was. Thanks for posting this update. I was born in the old Summerville hospital and have lived here for 42 years.

    This statement hurts my heart so much: “The only parts of this child’s body that were spared were the soles of her feet and her armpits,” Gordon said.

    Rest in peace Serenity.

    This sentence is music to my ears. I remember the Serenity case well. That poor little girl. These women are simply evil.

    They should be ashamed of themselves. Their outburst in that court pales in comparison to the torture they put Serenity through. They think they were in pain hearing their sentence? Just imagine what Serenity went through.

    RIP Sweet angel baby! Your violators will pay the ultimate price for your demise.

    It seems funny to me that both collapsed in the courtroom. Did they have that planned to try to get sympathy or did one copy off the other?

    I note that both deny being the one who killed Serenity, both blamed the other yet it doesn't sound like either were very forthcoming on what happened to her. Neither seem to understand that if they struck one blow, they were guilty. If they saw a blow struck and did not get her help for her, they were guilty and if they saw her becoming ill and did nothing, they were guilty.

    I wonder when they get to prison and the guards give them an order, will they collapse in tears? When one of the other women give them an order or else, will they collapse? If so they won't last long themselves.

    Justice for this darling baby girl- finally.

    Crying and writhing for themselves. I don't even want to imagine what Serenity suffered at the hands of these vile women.

    Good riddance and God speed. I hope they live long, hard lives in prison and think of what they did to get there every.single.day!
