Alfreedia Gregg-Glover, 45, will spend the next 26 years in prison for killing her 13-year-old adopted daughter, Alexis "Lexie" Glover.
In January 2009, Gregg-Glover told Prince William County police that Lexie disappeared from the Central Community Library in Manassas. Police launched a massive search. Somebody walking by a shallow creek in Woodbridge found her body two days later.
A medical examiner ruled that Lexie died of drowning and cold exposure. Police believe she was already dead by the time her mother reported her missing, authorities said. Gregg-Glover later confessed to her murder.
Gregg-Glover pled guilty to felony murder, felony child abuse and filing a false police report. A judge sentenced her to the maximum 51 years in prison but suspended 25 years.
