Justice almost served

Finch guilty of murder in 2 girls' hit-and-run deaths

Kenielle Finch hung his head as a Jefferson County jury found him guilty Tuesday of wanton murder for running over two little girls in July 2008 as he was fleeing from police in south Louisville.

Family and friends of the girls —5-year-old Claudia Faye Wadlington and 4-year-old Riley Jane Lawrence — hugged and quietly sobbed at the verdict, which carries a possible life sentence with eligibility for parole in 20 years.

“It was an incredible feeling,” Riley’s mother, Sarah Lawrence, said of the verdict in an interview. “We’ve waited a very long time to hear those words.”

Hopefully tomorrow the maximum sentence even though its not nearly enough.
