I'm not from here, but, this case has touched me deeply. It's hard to comprehend that people like this exist everyday, sometimes living right beside our families............People that have sex offencenes against kids should have to have a sighn in their yard and a special tag on their vehicle.

Time like these must be even harder for your family Christopher. I know they miss You all the time, but I would imagine they miss You even more when there are festivities and You are not here to enjoy them.

May the Lord help us all cope with your loss.

Bless You Christopher Michael Barrios Jr.

By Teresa Stepzinski
BRUNSWICK A judge has moved Peggy Edenfield's murder trial in the sexual abuse slaying of 6-year-old Christopher Michael Barrios Jr. to Valdosta.

Jury selection will begin Sept. 26 at the Lowndes County Courthouse, Superior Court Judge Stephen Scarlett said in an order filed late Tuesday.

Scarlett granted a change of venue requested by Edenfield's lawyer, who asserted his 59-year-old client could not receive a fair trial in Brunswick because of extensive pre-trial publicity about the 2007 murder case.

District Attorney Jackie Johnson agreed to the change of venue.

In cases like this, we shouldnt have to be. These people deserve any and all horrible treatment that anyone gives them.

All that aside, I do not believe they will be in prison long. I believe someone will kill them because of their horrible acts on an innocent child.

Peggy Edenfield sentenced to 60 years in prison in death of Christopher Barrios Jr.
She pleads guilty and mentally retarded to lesser charges, but murder is dropped.
By Teresa Stepzinski
BRUNSWICK - A judge sentenced Peggy Edenfield to 60 years in prison Thursday after she pleaded guilty to five of eight charges in the sexual abuse slaying of 6-year-old Christopher Michael Barrios Jr. four years ago.
The state dismissed two felony murder charges as part of the negotiated plea made over objections from Christopher's father, Mike Barrios, and grudging acceptance from Christopher's paternal grandmother, Sue Rodriguez.
Edenfield, 62, pleaded guilty but mentally retarded to false imprisonment, child molestation for masturbating while Christopher was molested and choked to death, second-degree cruelty to children, concealing the death of another and tampering with evidence. A second child molestation count was merged into the one she pleaded guilty to.
Superior Court Judge Stephen Scarlett, at the recommendation of prosecutors, sentenced her to the maximum on each charge, which adds up to 60 years in prison.
Edenfield, who a state psychologist said has an IQ of 62, made the last-minute plea deal during what was to have been her final hearing before her trial beginning Sept. 26.
Immediately after Scarlett imposed the sentence, Peggy Edenfield's sister, Sharon Phillips jumped up in the audience and shouted that Edenfield's lawyer, Richard Allen, has only seen her sister twice in the nearly five years she's been jailed awaiting trial and had left her essentially defenseless.
"She doesn't even get a chance to defend herself?" Phillips yelled.
Jail records, however, show that Allen repeatedly visited Edenfield throughout her incarceration. Allen attempted to respond to Phillips' accusations but Scarlett silenced him to try to prevent the situation from escalating.
Phillips also accused Glynn County police Capt. Marissa Tindale of spraying Lysol on her sister while questioning her about Christopher's disappearance and death.
At that point, Rodriguez leapt to her feet on the other side of the courtroom and shouted at Phillips, "What about Christopher?"
Taken aback, Phillips yelled, "I'm so sorry about that. It's not her fault. Peggy doesn't even know what an indictment means."

Over the years I think I've read these articles regarding Christopher's death 100 times, it never gets any easier to accept. I'm not sure if it was the article posted above or one I read somewhere else today, but the part where Chris is asking Peggy to help him because (they) were hurting him, and she just stood in the doorway and offered him nothing....it makes me cry all over again. I hope they all rot in hell for what they did to that poor baby. 60 years isn't enough, and I hope the other women in that prison hurt her badly every day for each year that she is alive.

Could not agree with you more. In some of the Middle Easter countries the sentence is whatever the next of kin desires. It may be barbaric to our way of living, but I sure wish in cases of child abuse we had the same standard. Can bet you that if that was the case, Peggy would not be alive today.
