Huckaby Goes Before Judge

Earlier this week I wrote about the disturbing murder of 8-year-old Sandra Cantu.

It got more disturbing yesterday.

I am disgusted by what I read about Melissa Huckaby's arraignment.

The official charge she is facing is "murder with the special circumstances of rape with a foreign object, lewd or lascivious conduct with a child under 14 and murder in the course of a kidnapping".

I had no idea that the poor girl had been raped with a foreign object.

Huckaby did not enter a plea.

The special circumstances means that if she is convicted, she could face life in prison without the possibility of parole OR the death penalty prosecutors have not determined if they will seek death as of yet. Also, no motive has been released to the media.

How more sickening can this story get???
