I know several of you are aware of who this sweet, young girl is & the circumstances surrounding her mother's death. I live 20 miles north of Lexington, KY where her mother was murdered. Her father's trial for the murder ended today, & he was found guilty. So, so, so sad.

Thanks for the update 3nail, I think about Almira often.
 
So sad....in essence she has now lost both of her parents. My thoughts and prayers go out to Almira and her family during this difficult time!

All apologies if these have been previously posted.  Speechless.

Without knowing the details, I sincerely hope that justice was served.
I also hope that Almira is able to overcome this terrible hurdle in her life. The girl has a natural gift, and it should be an extra charge against someone for jeopardizing it.

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!!
I was hoping this news made it here.
Almira now lives w/ Buck and Patty Williams who have full custody of Almira. Buck is head of PGA bookings and is WSP manager and REMs manager. Good guy..

Here is a link to the story.
I'm glad this guy got what he deserves.
Such a crazy story and can't believe I met this guy multiple times and was nice to him.
Almira and her mom did not deserve this and it's a sad story.
Almira is ok and will have a better life now.

Hope everyone here is happy, healthy and well.

Cheers.

Danny

I think if I met her, I would just want hug her. What an awfull thing for a youngin to go through. I just pray that her spirit wasn't too damaged by all of this.

Unfortunately, there is a hearing next Tue. because the defense team is claiming wrongdoing during jury deliberation & is seeking a new trial. I can only hope this is denied so Almira can move forward in her life & try to put this horrible ordeal behind her. The only memories of her mom should be the beautiful ones and not tainted by this ugly trial.

Good Lord. Let this be over for her. Why does this man want to continue to torment his daughter? He was tried and convicted. I agree with you 3nail, hopefully this will all end it and she can go on with her life and aspriring career.

With the obvious caveat of saying that I have no idea what actually happened, this mess should just be over legally so it doesn't have to be lived over and over by the secondary victim (Almira) emotionally.

Barring more appeals, he has been sentenced to life in prison.

Unfortunately the saga continues.  In 2014 his conviction and sentence was overturned by the KY Supreme Court.  He was back in court yesterday and he entered an Alford plea.  He is scheduled for sentencing March 11.
