Mother of Pa. killing suspect tried to sell daughter
GREENSBURG, Pa.(AP)— The mother of a western Pennsylvania woman charged with torturing and killing a mentally disabled woman tried to sell her daughter in 1994 for $10,000.
Twenty-year-old Amber Meidinger, of Greensburg, and five others are charged with homicide in last week’s death of 30-year-old Jennifer Daugherty. Her body was found in a parking lot.
Meidinger’s mother, Flora Meidinger, pleaded guilty in Westmoreland County Court in 1995 to trying to sell Amber in May 1994, when Amber was 4.
Meidinger, who changed her name to Flora Haase, said she needed money for bills. Police arrested her in a sting. She was sentenced to two years of probation and had to undergo a mental evaluation.
Amber Meidinger and the other defendants are in the Westmoreland County prison.

Well - I guess that little tidbit might figure into her sentence...Im sure they will use that in her defense.

But - a shame, the system saved her...and now will destroy her.

I wonder how much money was made off her misfortunes.

No they won't.the ACCUSED will reveal the real killer,the one who actually put the idea into motion and carried it out.There is no honor among thieves.They'll start talking once they realize their ass is going to be GRASS if they don't.I hope they all go upriver,myself.

Well if you take the fictional tale of the bible as truth there was the whole Ark thing because of the sodomites.
Huh

I wouldn't be calling something fictional that you are misquoting to begin with..The "Ark" thing had nothing to do with the sodomites.You've got the stories confused.
Do a little reading up next time you want to go on record as calling the Bible as fictional.
What proof can you offer that it IS fiction,anyway?

Let me get this straight; people want government to not spend so much money, but then they complain that a judge doesn't lock up some guy who had PLEAD GUILTY. He plead guilty to the lesser sentence not the longer one. Quit watching legal shows on television and learn how the system really works. If every criminal was locked up and we threw away the key...who pays for that? We already lock up more people per capita than any other industrialized country A huge problem is Pennsylvania emptied out many of its mental hospitals and there are a lot of people out in the community that need intense supervision. When they do not get it, the potential is there for awful things to occur.

legalize marijuana and we will have plenty of space for the dangerous criminals that deserve to be lock up.

This was a tragedy almost beyond my ability to read it. I know someone like this right now.
As far as the people that befriended her - I see a Helter Skelter. Actually, it's worse. Those non-humans that did that to this woman are like cats--senseless killers. If they are ever let back out in society, they might as well start paroling people like Manson. This will turn into a scary society none of know how to deal with.

So,did the "guy" you are talking about plead guilty to a lesser sentence? Is this the same case you're referring to,because,there were 5 others involved from what I've read about it.
