Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: http://bit.ly/MMASurgeEp1 The parents of a 2-year-old girl who was killed by the family pet python were found guilty of her death. The verdicts came in from the jury on Thursday, July 14 2011 in a Florida courtroom. After just two hours of deliberations the jury found Jaren Hare and the girl's stepfather Charles Darnell guilty of manslaughter, third-degree murder and child neglect charges. Each faces 35-45 years in prison. The tragedy occurred in July of 2009, after the child was strangled and bitten to death in her crib by the 13 lb albino Burmese python. The snake had escaped from an aquarium that had a quilt for a lid. The fangs of the python were in the toddler's forehead when she was found by her stepfather who hit the snake with a cleaver and called 9-11. In the wake of the tragedy the Legislature changed state rules to prohibit the possession of Burmese pythons and other large constrictor snakes. http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2011/07/python-couple-guilty-manslaughter-child-neglect-jaren-hare http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2011/07/14/2011-07-14_killer_python_crushed_2yearold_girl_to_death_in_her_crib_and_tried_to_swallow_he.html?r=news/national http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/os-snake-trial-begins-20110710,0,5186652.story http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2014895/Mother-guilty-murder-daughter-strangled-pet-python.html
