What do you do?

There was a murder in florida a few years ago (1999) that attracted international attention.

A six-year-old girl suffered a brutal, grisly death in the house of her babysitter. Her skull was fractured, her liver cut (internally), The poor girl suffered a brutal, grisly death. It turns my stomach.

Trying such a young person as an adult, with the death penalty or life imprisonment as possibilites, also seems unthinkable.
