2nd degree murder? Maybe some kind of negligence but murder? 2nd degree murder, while not considered premeditated, still is defined by an intent to kill the person. cmon!

Why didn't they have a survival kit in the car? They (the Weather Channel for one) always say you should keep things like a blanket, food and flares in your car in case something like this happens. The blanket will help keep you warm and the flares will attract attention for help.

My sympathies to the family.

What an idiot not the girls fauther but the person that im replying too. First if you got stuck in the snow with a 11 year old child in a snow storm would you stay in the car and posably get intumed with snow and die. or leave your child in the car and go for help ( If child dies you go to jail) Or take your child with you were you can try to protect her while you fing help. Think about it idiot

The father made his children walk without him not with him. So therefore he is an idiot because what the hell was he thinking. Letting a child walk 10 mile is crazy in any weather without parents. The report says the snow was knee deep for the children and he deserves jail time. He let his children walk while he got his truck out and took his behind home. Now tell me where was his love then.

Just as I keep items in my home in case of a Hurricane, this man should have been prepared for an emergency.

He survived because he stayed in the car. Why, in God's name, did he send his daughter to walk that extremely long distance?
