14 year old Josh Phillips was playing baseball when he accidentally hit 8 year old Maddie Clifton in the eye with his bat. Maddie screamed, and out of panic, he dragged her into his house and strangled her with a telephone cord. His attempt at strangling her did not work so he stabbed her eleven times and beat her to death with the baseball bat.
Maddie’s body was only discovered when his mother noticed that his water bed appeared to be leaking, and when she moved the mattress to the side, she found the little girl’s body inside.
He was convicted of the murder and is now serving a life sentence with no possibility for parole.
