I am looking for anyone who knows anything about a case where a child was killed by her mother and stepfather in October 2005. The girl's name was Ashley Andrews, age 12 and her mother is Christina Andrews/or Christina Dillard and the girl's stepdad is Shaun Dillard.

They were charged in her death,and it might have reached a grand jury, but there hasn't been anything at all in the news since 2005. Does anyone know what is going on with this case? It might be a death penalty case. If you know, please post.

I knew both of them.My husband's Aunt was best friends with Ashley's Parents and we all thought something was wrong.Ashley was always having to tend to her little brother when he was a baby.And never really got to be happy because of the life she had to live with both of her biological parents.I wish that I knew what was going on.As far as I know Chris is still in the county jail in protective custody as far as he goes I have no clue.But I hope they both get the death penalty or that the same thing happens to them that they did to her.She was always saying oh Ashley is only 12 but she has legs like a grown woman.Chris always wanted the perfect life like a fairy tale so I think maybe at first she didn't know that he was having unconsentual sex with her daughter and when she found out she got so mad and jealous and treated her daughter like she was a woman messing around with him.I think it got to the point to where he would've rather slept with a child than her.And I don't know why he done what he done the story I heard from a reliable source was that they were both on oxycontin and other drugs.Either way there will never be justification for what they did they deserve to thrown in the prison population an have the guards shout out what they done.So they can get their A** BEAT.

I couldn't agree more with you about what Christina and Shaun deserve. I can't understand how A MOTHER can do what Christina is believed to have done, and her husband is a sickening excuse of a grown man i have ever seen. I can't see why he would ever want to have sexqith or-excuse me--RAPE a little 12 year old child!

He should be in the general population in jail and so should Christina. Why should they be protected? They didn't protect Ashley when she was alive. If you know anything more about this case,Christina,or Shaun please email me at [email protected], Thanks

Christina's trial is in Nov. and Shaun's is in Sept. They will get what they deserve. I was Ashley's stepmother. I was married to her father. And as soon as my ex-husband found out that he was the father of Ashley we Fought DHR to get custody of her. She cam to live with us in Alabama but when me and her father got a divorce a judge returned Ashley to her mother.Her sister and brother ask about her everyday. She was the sweetest little girl would have ever met.

Didn't her mother have a drug problem of some kind?
DHR returned her to her mother even knowing this?
That is so wrong. I hope Christina and Shaun certainly do get what is coming to them, and Ashley gets justice for what happened to her, and that her sister and brother get justice for having their sister taken away from them like that.

She has had drug problems on and off since Ashley was born. Absolutely a judge knew that. DHR was not involved after me and father got custody of her, so it was a family court judge that said she needed to go back since my ex husband was single now. Another thing that bothers me is that the DHR never once received any complaints that anything was wrong. I have spoken with the person in charge of the child neglect division and she said if they just had one person had complained about Ashley she would have taken right out of that home. I have heard many people say that they thought something was wrong but no calls were ever made to the DHR!! As far as her sister and brother , it will them that one day gets to decide if they want to see Chris be put to sleep for murdering their sister and that is one decision I never wanted to have to make.

I just emailed you, with a question. It makes me very upset to learn nobody intervened and called DHS for Ashley at all. She had teachers and they never called, other relatives failed to call. Yet, people felt something was wrong and because nobody made that extra step and made the DHS call-she was tortured and murdered. I just feel terrible about it and I think Christina AND Shaun should be put to death.But you are right, your children will have to make the decision if they want to see this or not. It must be a very tough situation for you all.

I am the guy Ashley called "Grampy". I helped to raise Ashley for the first 6 years of her life. DHS knew the situation, because Ashly's maternal grandmother and I kept them informed. The week after Ashley's death, Ashley's DHS case worker (in defense of her own lack of action to help Ashley) told me that the Judge, who ajudacated the child custody aggreement between Paul Cavlier and Christina Andrews Dillard, told DHS to "stay out of it", as this was between Ashley's biological parents. Once Paul Cavalier handed Ashley back to her mother (Christina), DHS used this as an excuse to just look the other way. They, and many others who should have been responsible for Ashley's well-being dropped the ball and now have this child's blood on their hands. The State of Mississippi knew Ashley Andrews was at high-risk, her maternal Grandmother and I told them so many times, and nothing was done to save this child in the last terrible 18 months of her life. Essentally, with the assistance of the State of Mississippi, Christina Andrews Dillard and Shaun Dillard were able to isolate, abuse and ultimately kill Ashley.

If you want to know more, please feel free to E-mail Ashley's maternal grandmother (Kathy Andrews)or myself at [email protected]

Haley Barbour, tell me it ain't so! We have been waiting to hear an explanation from your office since October 2005.

I am Ashley's maternal grandmother.Ashley had many people let her remain in known danger.I could get no help from DHS, the govenor,nor the people living with and around her.Shaun Dillard made a deal with the court ,if they would drop the death penalty,and three counts of sexual battery,he would recieve life in prison without parole.I know because I was in the courtroom when he was sentenced.Christina Andrews Dillard will go to trial in November and will most likely get the death penalty.None of this gives us any peace or closeure.

My name is Kathleen Andrews.I am Ashley's maternal grandmother.I raised Ashley untill she was seven years old.At that time her mother,Christina,made sure I had NO contact with her,except the ocational phone call,which both "parents" monitered.So many people looked the other way while Ashley was molested,beaten,and tortured.If her teacher's,DHS,the people around her would have spoken out she would be alive today.I even tried to contact anyone in the govenor,s office to no avail.Ashley died a horrible death.For three days she was duct taped,thrown in a filthy cat box,dragged by her hair until she was scalped.All the while her"parents"beat her with tree limbs,fishing poles,and wire clothes hangers.In between the beatings,she was repeatedly raped and sexual tortured.I wish people that "think" they know what happened would get the facts before adding all the B.S. that seems to pump their ego

I am Ashley's grandmother.MANY people called DHS and other authorities.No one could be bothered to get involved.Ashley's foster parents were basicly told if they complained she would be removed from their care.The state of Mississippi is as much to blame as her "parents".

In your post some time back, you said Christina's trial was in Nov. Did that occur? And if so, what was the outcome? Thanks.

I am Ashley's Grandmother. We fought DHS for years to keep Ashley safe.I was told her father,Paul,gave her back to Chris because it was too much hassle!I raised Ashley for the first seven years of her life.Then Chris went after me and I was never allowed to see Ashley again.I have been to everyone from DHS to the Gov.,and no one would help.The Gov. wouldn't even answer my calls,emails,or letters.I feal every child is in danger in Pearl River Co.Who is your aunt? Did Chris tell her I was dead?If you can tell me anything more about Ashley or her so called parents I would be greatful.By the way her stepfather got life without parole.All sexual abuse charges were droped in exchange for his testimony against Chris.She goes to trial in the next few months.I was told the first three statements Chris made to the police would not be allowed in court.This does not sound good for a conviction.Thank you for caring about Ashley.Iam so alone in my sorrow that it helps to know someone else cares.
