Fast Features Old - DO NOT USE - The Coast News Rancho Santa Fe

Stepmom charged in North Carolina girl’s murder is reporting that the stepmother of 10-year-old Zahra Baker was indicted Feb. 21 on second-degree murder charges in the girl’s death.
Zahra was reported missing from her North Carolina home in October and a month later some of her dismembered remains were found.
Elisa Baker had previously been charged with obstruction of justice after she admitted to police to planting a fake ransom note.
She told police Zahra was killed two weeks prior to being reported missing.
The indictment said, “The defendant had a history and pattern of physical, verbal and psychological abuse of the victim.” It also described Zahra as “very young, physically infirm, or handicapped.”
Zahra had lost hearing in both ears and part of her left leg while being treated for cancer at age 5.
District Attorney Jay Gaither said Monday that the state “has no credible evidence to suggest that anyone other than Elisa Baker” was involved in the killing.

I think they should take Zarah Baker’s prosthetic leg and beat her stepmother and father to death with it and send these two Demons straight to Hell to spend an eternity with the Devil.
