Krystel Banes ~ Age 3

Krystel , 3, was sexually assaulted, and strangled by her 14 year old cousin. The mother of a 3-year-old girl tearfully testified that she found bruising and bite marks on her daughter in the weeks before the girl was found dead in a cousin’s house.

In November 2010, Krystel’s murderer was sentenced to two life terms in prison without parole, plus 30 years, after being convicted in June of murder, sexual abuse and child endangerment in connection with the death of his three-year-old cousin in July of 2009. He was tried as an adult.
