    Can you please provide an update as to the status of this murders criminal case against him. He has caused irreparable damage to our family. Shaylee was a beautiful loving and caring young lady who didn’t deserve for this to happen to her. Our hearts are broken. Although this will not bring her back. We want Justice for Shaylee. Why would anyone want to hurt our little Shaylee? No one could ever answer that question.
