In Gaesden, Alabana, 49 year old Joyce Hardin Gerrard was found guilty of capital murder for the 2012 death of her granddaughter, 9-year-old Savannah Hardin.  It was a high profile child abuse case, in which the girl collapsed and died after being
forced to run for more than 3 hours as punishment for lying about eating candy bars.  The jury will now decide on whether or not to apply the death penalty.  Hopefully, this tragedy can serve as a cautionary warning to the many parents who use harsh
discipline techniques or boot-camp style punishment with their children.
