Elisa Baker will serve 15-18 years in prison for the murder of 10-year-old Zahra Baker.
While Thursdayâs sentencing ended a nearly year-long criminal follow-up to Zahraâs disappearance and death, law enforcement officials said that many questions surrounding the mystery of her death remain.
Almost a year after Zahra Baker was reported missing from her Hickory home, the world finally got an explanation behind what happened to the 10-year-old Australian girl who won two battles against cancer.
Superior Court Judge Timothy Kincaidâs sentence was loud and clear on Thursday â Elisa Baker will serve at least 15 years in state prison. What is less lucid is if her sentence is just.
Elisaâs family members are âtorn,â the public thinks âno,â and Zahra Bakerâs biological mother seems content with the ruling, but offered no public comment.
