What a sad story and it shows people have children they cannot deal with. Raising children is hard work . Hurting children is a cowardly act ,for anyone can hurt a child but you have to be cold and callous as well as cowardly to do it. Kids are so wonderful and full of life no one should cut that short . Justice will not bring this little angel back to life .

Baby killers should just be put to death without any appeals, the children they’ve killed got no chance to appeal to them for their lives. Rainbow Hills’ sister, accessory and offering an indignity to a corpse, should be branded and tattooed. The life they took was full of potential and future promises, and for whatever reasons, they decided to kill the child and then bury her body in a bush like trash. If they ever get out of prison they should be sterilized, they have already proven that they do not deserve children. I lump them in with Karla Homolka, who also should not be allowed to breed and live free.
