A Grave Memorial
Lilith Peters was born with a full
head of brown hair and beautiful brown eyes.
At the age of four months
old, Ashylnn's mother allowed a man to rape
and kill her. Jessica Lynn
Howell, who was 25 at the time and Jordan
Lafayette Prince, who was 24
at the time, sent text messages back and
forth, with Jessica consenting
to what Jordan wanted to do to her four
month old daughter.
Jessica went to spend the night with Jordan
on December 2, 2012, the
following morning, paramedics were called to
the home because a baby
was not breathing. Ashlynn was taken first
to the local hospital and
she was flown to Cardinal Glennon Children's
Medical Center, where she
was treated and ended up dying the next day.
An autopsy was done and
what was found was horrifying.
Ashlynn died of asphyxiation and was also
found to have injuries
related to sodomy which caused bleeding that
was said to be so severe
it would have killed her had she not been
strangled. Ashlynn also had
bruises on her chest, stomach, left arm,
back and her legs as well as
being the victim of blunt force trauma to
the left side of her head
which caused a cut to her ear and bleeding
on her skull.
In June of 2013, Jordan was arrested and
charged with first degree
murder and after what was found, he was also
charged with forcible
sodomy and child abuse. Though he didn't
deserve to have bail set,
Jordan was given a measly bail of $150,000.
payable in cash only.
In the beginning, Jessica denied having
anything to do with what
happened. When the truth came about the
death of this precious Angel,
it was discovered that through text messages
and online access, Jessica
found out that Jordan had a past record that
involved a minor who was
only four years old. Jessica and Jordan
texted back and forth and in
those texts she encouraged him to rape her
not only contributed to her daughters
death, but she also
baby's killer to
in some unspeakable acts"
County Prosecutor - Tim Lohmar
was reported Jessica offered to allow
Jordan to molest Ashlynn in order to
spice up their relation ship. REALLY?
What a sick disgusting piece
of trash you are, Jessica. How DARE
you offer an innocent, little Angel up
as a sacrifice in order to
please a monstrous piece of garbage.
Jessica was charged with with child
endangerment and later that changed
to second degree murder and her bail was
set for $1 million. Why wasn't
HIS bail set that high?
today, June 12, 2014, I have found
nothing new in this case.

you to Betty
for sending me this update)
In January of 2015, Jessica Lynn
Howell was 26 years old when she was
sentenced to 25 years in prison for
her part in the death of this
little Angel. Jessica had admitted
to encouraging and allowing her
boyfriend to sexually abuse Ashlynn.
After her sentencing, the Prosecutor
had this to say:
failed to protect her child in
the most disgusting,
A Judge was thoroughly disgusted
with Jessica when he asked:
you have any
remorse? Don't you wish you had
your baby back"
Jessica cried and said:
foolish. I didn't understand the
weight of my actions"
One of Jessica's two remaining
children is in foster care while the
other has been adopted.
Reports say that Jordan will go to
trial in March of 2015.

for this update.
In April of 2015 Jordan Lafayette
Prince, who was 26 years old at the
time was found guilty of first
degree murder, child abuse and
forcible sodomy. Judge Nancy
Schneider, who said Jordan's actions
were inhumane and cruel and this was
the most difficult cause she had
presided over in her career,
sentenced Jordan to three life
sentenced to run consecutively as
the Prosecutor, Phil Groenweghe had
want him to have no hope for any
other outcome than
Judge Nancy Schneider added that
Jordan showed no remorse at all for
what he had done to this little
Angel and that had played a part in
her decision in sentencing. I like
this Judge and think she should talk
to some other Judges in this world
who have no concept of the value of
the life of a child.
During the trial Jordan chose to
make no statements at all. During
the hearing, Better Peter's, who is
Ashlynn's grandmother, had asked
that Jordan receive the death
penalty, apparently, that was not an
option in this case:
day Ashlynn was born was one of
the happiest days of my
and he swore he would protect
her. Instead, he snuffed her
life out because of his sick,
