Karen McCarron was sentenced to 36 years (prosecution had asked for 50 years) today in Illinois for the murder of her daughter, Katie. She will be 75 years old when she gets out of prison, and would then face a fine of $25,000 plus probation. From WMBD/WYZZ TV News Staff article:
State prosecutors remind the public of another number. The number 3. That's how old Katie was when she died.
Kevin Johnson, State Prosecutor says, "Their daughter, niece, grandchild, were murdered, don't know if they're ever going to be able to let that go.
I am glad that sentencing has finally occurred, and thankful Katie and her family have received some justice.
My thoughts are with Katie's family.
