    Did they say where she'd be serving her sentence?

    You're welcome. People here are outraged about it. Every time she appears in court, including today, they have to use extra security to keep people from killing her sorry ass.

    They haven't released that info yet. I don't think it has been decided yet.

    Here's an article from a local station: Elisa Baker sentenced to 18 years for Zahra's murder - WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC- It's kind of upsetting because they mention some of the evidence. So beware.

    I know some guards that work in prisons around the state so I wonder if they'll have any stories to share at some point. Here's some more explanations from the DA from the HDR:

    NEWTON -- District Attorney Jay Gaither said he is satisfied with Elisa Baker’s 18 year sentence.
    “I stand in full ownership of my decisions,” he said. “I embrace (the deal) whole-heartedly. This woman gave the state evidence and left the death penalty on the table. Eighteen years is a great deal.”
    Gaither said although Elisa admitted to writing the ransom note in October, there was not enough evidence to convict her of killing her stepdaughter, Zahra. When the media showed images of investigators searching the Caldwell County landfill and pulling out a mattress, Elisa asked her attorneys to speak to the district attorney’s office.
    It was not until investigators were searching the Caldwell County landfill and media showed images of a mattress that was found there that Elisa asked her attorneys to speak to the district attorney’s office.
    “We’re never quite sure why the defendant came forward,” Gaither said. “I think she was mortally afraid the police were closer than they were.”
    It was unlikely Zahra’s body would be found without Elisa’s help, Gaither said. Elisa gave information on Zahra’s remains and how she died.
    “Her statements would not be admitted and she could be prosecuted for first-degree murder if she was not truthful,” Gaither said of the arrangement for Elisa’s information. “I saw three options: a third person committed the murder and she can give us testimony against them, Elisa Baker will admit to the murder and we’ll be limited to second-degree murder or she’ll lie to us and we can prosecute aggressively and give us leads to other information.
    “There’s no way we could know what we would learn. There was shock, horror and revulsion following what we learned,” he said.
    Gaither said he wanted to prosecute Elisa for first-degree murder. He and others in his office consulted legal minds around the state and country. Given the information, however, second-degree was the best they thought they could get, Gaither said.
    “Prior to charging her with murder, we charged her with low-level felonies. The prior convictions would count as points on her record for sentencing,” he said.
    Gaither anticipated her attorney appealing her sentencing, which would delay Elisa’s murder trial, keeping her in jail longer.
    He said Elisa will likely serve the 14 year minimum of her sentence.
    Gaither reiterated that he did not believe Elisa’s husband, Adam, was involved.
    “Crimes with two, three, four people, people usually turn on people, they want to know what the other person says,” Gaither said. “With one person, they stay quiet.”
    He said that’s what happened here, until Elisa voluntarily came forward.
    “Today is one many have been working toward for almost a year,” said Hickory Police Chief Tom Adkins. “We followed all leads that resulted in charging Elisa. This brings closure to our community, our family, our nation and our world.”
    He praised the large number of people on “Team Zahra” that have worked to find our precious Zahra. Adkins acknowledged the sentence of 14 years and 9 months to 18 years and 6 months may not be what the public had hoped for. But it is what is fitting, according to state laws for someone with no criminal background.
    Adkins said he was satisfied with the sentence.
    “She provided the location of Zahra, and that helped bring Zahra home,” he said.
    Adkins admitted the question of what really happened has not been answered.
    “Only one person knows, and she’s not talking,” he said. “There’s evidence in Zahra’s room that directs us, but nobody knows for sure.”
    While Adkins and Gaither talked, the investigators, prosecutors and others involved on the case stood behind him. Zahra’s birth mother, Emily Dietrich, also stood behind them. She seemed overcome by emotion at times, crying and hugging her mother.
    Adam said the sentence did not seem fair.
    “It’s pretty sad when you get less than 20 years for taking a child’s life,” he said.
    Adkins challenged others to help prevent something like this in the future.
    “I encourage you to report acts of violence and neglect against our children,” he said. “Remember the spirit of a little girl that most of us never met, but who touched our lives.”

    “It’s pretty sad when you get less than 20 years for taking a child’s life...”
    I think the prosecutors watched the Casey Anthony verdict and were worried that a jury would let the evil slut walk. The cases are similar in that the circumstantial evidence is overwhelming, but there was no way to prove without a shadow of a doubt that Eliza actually murdered the girl -- she "just" dismembered her body and disposed of it. Florida spent how many millions on an unsuccessful prosecution? At least this way NC is saved the cost of a trial, and the guilty party will go behind bars for a substantial number of years.

    We can only hope that the other inmates make Eliza Baker's life acutely miserable. But she'll probably be separated from the main population for her own protection.

    I haven't heard Zahra's father speak much, but I suspect his IQ is around 100.

    While Adkins and Gaither talked, the investigators, prosecutors and others involved on the case stood behind him. Zahra’s birth mother, Emily Dietrich, also stood behind them. She seemed overcome by emotion at times, crying and hugging her mother.
    Adam said the sentence did not seem fair.
    “It’s pretty sad when you get less than 20 years for taking a child’s life,” he said.
    ^ So, the dad Adam said this? When for all intents and purposes it appears that he let this other woman treat his daughter like a punching bag before she finally killed her? To me, it seemed like he had every opportunity to stop this slow train wreck from happening.

    By the way, in addition to being stupid, this guy had faced multiple serious charges unrelated to his daughter's disappearance, including "assault with a deadly weapon and failure to return rental property, two counts of communicating threats and five counts of writing worthless checks". So he was a bad guy all around.

    Earlier in the thread they say that the biological mom, Emily Dietrich, had surrendered Zara to Adam because she suffered from post natal depression. But it also appears that Adam had Zara for 8 years in Australia before he moved to the U.S. with Elisa. I guess I'm wondering whether Emily Dietrich was still suffering from depression after 8 years, and why she didn't protest Adam taking her daughter something like 9,000 miles away.
