A Florida man won't get a retrial and is still on death row for murdering a five year old baby girl.
Harrel Franklin Braddy attempted to murder Shandelle Maycock, and threw her daughter Quatisha into the Everglades for alligators to eat her in 1998.
Braddy (who had just been released for attempted murder) befriended Maycock at church but she rebuffed his advances.
Maycock asked for a ride home and claiming Maycock "used" him, so Braddy choked her until she was unconscious. He kidnapped her and her daughter, but Maycock woke up and jumped out Braddy's moving car with Quatisha.
Braddy circled back and choked her again, dumped her on the side of the interstate and tossed Quatisha in the Everglades.
The little girl's body was found by fishermen three days later with a crushed skull and missing arm.
Braddy has been denied his appeal for a retrial for his gruesome crime and will remain imprisoned.
So sad…so very very sad…
