Her daughter's name was misspelled. it should read "Tobie McLarty". I hope the Griffin and Alliman families get justice someday, because I doubt it will be anytime soon. "Rebecca Lofton's daughters are haunted. Instead of remembering her free-spirited nature, generosity and effervescence, they told jurors Wednesday they are haunted by images of her fate at the hands of Michael Carlson.
Jennifer Beltz called Carlson's crime "barbaric and inexcusable." In a letter to the jury, Toby McClarty said she hopes Carlson will never forget her mother's laugh or the fact her children and grandchildren will never hear it again because of him."
