Missouri Teenager is Sentenced to Life

A Missouri, Alyssa Bustamante, 18, teenager confessed to killing a 9-year-old girl, because “she wanted to know how it felt to kill someone.” She pled guilty in January to second-degree murder and armed criminal action for the 2009 murder. Today, she was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole and “a consecutive 30-year term in the armed criminal action charge.”

At the hearing, Prosecutors cited her journal entries where Bustamante described the exhilaration of killing Elizabeth:

“I strangled them and slit their throat and stabbed them now they’re dead Bustamante wrote in her diary, which was read in court by a handwriting expert. “I don’t know how to feel atm. It was ahmazing. As soon as you get over the ‘ohmygawd I can’t do this’ feeling, it’s pretty enjoyable. I’m kinda nervous and shaky though right now. Kay, I gotta go to church now…lol.”
