Run To Death
FILE -- This 2006 photo provided by Patrick Blackwelder shows his former stepdaughter, Savannah Hardin. A judge refused bond Friday, Jan. 10, 2014 for Joyce Hardin Gerrard, jailed for nearly two years while awaiting trial on charges she killed her granddaughter Savannah Hardin by making the child run until she collapsed and died. Authorities have charged Gerrard, and stepmother, Jessica Mae Hardin, with murder in her death. Police say the 9-year-old girl was run to death as punishment for lying.
