verdict. he said, quote -- "i believe ashley white received a fair trial and that justice was served. something caused noah to fall into the septic tank. there is no evidence that ashley white deliberately killed noah, but her lack of supervision certainly caused his death." now when asked about parents who may be concerned that if they fall asleep while their kids are in the home and that they could be charged with a crime, fleenor said that "the home was so atrocious, and the septic tank was such an obvious danger, that she had to be held accountable. it wasn't just that she laid down to take a nap." ashley white sentencing hearing is may 16. some of her family members were court today. they said they did not want to go on camera. ashley white did appear quite emotional throughout much of the day, but she had no visible reaction when the judge read her guilty verdict. in pulaski, bethany teague wsls 10. new at eleven...
