Officials say 6-year-old Wash. girl died of blunt-force trauma



PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - Prosecutors expect to charge a 17-year-old boy as an adult in the death and sexual assault of a 6-year-old Washington state girl.

Prosecutors in Kitsap County on Monday identified the teen as Gabriel Gaeta. They say in court documents that they have probable cause to charge him with first-degree murder and first-degree rape of a child.

The teen was to appear Monday afternoon in Kitsap County Superior Court.

Court records say Jenise (juh-NEES') Wright died of blunt-force trauma to the head, and there was evidence she was strangled.

Authorities say state crime lab matched Gaeta's DNA to evidence found at the scene. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

My heart is heavy for the incredible pain and suffering this innocent went through. I cannot even imagine the grief of her parents and family - this is an horrific nightmare that will never leave them until their grave.

I only hope the sub-human monster who touched her innocent body is executed sooner rather than later. Society owe these kind of men nothing other than their own life taken. He does not deserve to be in prison for life and be capable of laughing at a joke, feeling his stomach full and having no responsibilities - just to exist. His presence on this earth is in of itself an abomination.

What about swift punishment in this Country, 15 to 20 plus years on death row is crazy, and if your in jail you can get free college and health care, the next thing will be a pension. If the needle doesn't work get a rope.

Yeah - we sure need revenge, don't we? Read my comment above - near solitary for life - the worst possible punishment for anyone and believe it or not, the cheapest for us.

The parents of this 6 year old, although surely distraught, need to be held accountable also. She was last seen 24 hours before she was reported missing because they always let her roam free in the neighborhood and often would go all day without coming home. Really...a 6 year old let to roam free all day without supervision? What did she eat? To me this feels like child endangerment or something.

it makes me wonder what sort of a woman would allow herself to become pregnant by a pedophile? Anyone seen any pictures of these two characters?

Four ropes - tie each one to him, and then one each to a horse, and send them off in different directions.

If I was the warden, and i'll never be the warden, I would like to throw him into a deep pit with three huge hungry pigs who devour him in 30 seconds while he screams for mercy.

On one hand it is probably good you will never be the warden but on the other hand I think im certain cases you would make a great warden. Your pig idea is terrifying and I think just about right for monsters who prey on little girls and boys.
