    wondering what this "other" hearing is about? It was originally scheduled for Friday at 9am - but I guess none of the articles mentioned this?

    TIA!

    Hi @Spellbound, thank you, it's nice to talk with others, like you, who care so much.

    They do have some support, and you're right, the pain won't end after the trial.
    The prosecutor said that Leiliana was "passed around a lot." Things like that have to sting for them. They didn't pass her off, she was taken from them.

    I truly hope that after the trial, more healing for them can begin to take place.

    I know they tried so hard to protect her. They spoke up, called CPS, were torn when they had to return her to her mother ..... they tried! I ache for them every time I see anything about Liliana.

    Let them rot. This made me sick reading all this garbage. They don't deserve to ever see the natural light of day again. Ever.

    You're welcome, @Spellbound! I'm so glad that there is some more justice for Leiliana.

    It looks like the family will be able to confront both the mother and the boyfriend at the sentencing on Wednesday. I hope that helps the family to heal a little more

    Charles Phifer received an automatic life sentence for killing Leiliana Wright, his girlfriend's daughter, in 2016.

    The crime was so awful that even the judge said he believes Phifer deserves a fate similar to what he put that little girl through. After the verdict, the judge had harsh words for the defendant. He said in his 28 years of handling hundreds of murder cases, he thinks this is the worst case he’s ever seen.

    “What you did was monstrous and salvage,” Judge Robert Burns told Phifer. “You and Jeri did monstrous things to that little girl.”

    Phifer showed little emotion as he heard a scathing rebuke from Judge Burns.

    “Life in prison seems insufficient,” the judge said. “Hanging a little girl in a closet is savage. You should die in a locked closet.”

    __

    Jeri Quezada will be sentenced for injury to a child on Wednesday. Under a plea agreement, she is expected to get 50 years.

    Victims will then make statements to both perpetrators.
