Frank D Price, 36, Illinois
http://www.kmox.com/pages/5952422.php?EDWARDSVILLE, IL (KMOX Radio) -- Frank Price will die in prison. The 36-year old who was supposed to drive his girlfriend's five-year old boy to kindergarten, but instead brutally beat him to death, was sentenced to 70 years in prison by Madison County Judge Ann Callis.
Madison County State's Attorney Bill Mudge applauds the sentence. "This young child endured pain and suffering that no one can possibly imagine," Mudge said, "And he was defenseless and did nothing to justify it."
Price got the maximum 60 years, plus a ten-year extended sentence because a child under age 12 was killed. Sentencing guidelines require Price serve the entire sentence.
A Madison County jury had convicted Price of first-degree murder in the September 2008 beating death of 5-year old Ethan Allen, of unincorporated Cottage Hills.
A nice Christmas present for Ethans Family!!
I am so glad that Judge Callis was Prices Jurist, Kudos to You, Your Honor, is a fitting title!!
