Group wants parents punished

News

A small demonstration was held outside of the Clearfield County courthouse Wednesday.  The group wants to see harsh punishment for a couple accused of abusing their infant daughter.

Aaron Mills and Stephanie McGuire were originally scheduled to be in court for a preliminary hearing. That was postponed but the rally went on as planned.

Organizers held signs in support of baby Lily Jane, while also urging prosecutors to go after a life sentence.

The parents of the four-week-old child are facing various assault and drug charges. Doctors found the girl with two broken legs, a broken rib, and internal injuries.

The people at the rally say they are speaking up for a child who couldn’t defend herself.

They plan to be back at the courthouse when Mills and McGuire appear in court on March 15.
