Jaren Hare and Charles Darnell Jailed for 12 Years after starving eight-foot pet python that killed two-year-old daughter - 25th Aug 2011

A mother and her boyfriend were sentenced to 12 years in prison today after her pet snake escaped from its cage and strangled her two-year-old daughter because it had been starved.

Florida python owners Jaren Hare, 21, Charles Darnell, 34, from Florida, were convicted last month of third degree murder, manslaughter and child neglect. They received their sentence today.

In July 2009, Hare's daughter Shaianna was found dead in her cot, with their albino Burmese python, Gypsy, coiled tightly around her and its fangs embedded in her forehead.

Investigators say that the 8ft 6in serpent had not been fed for a month and was kept in a tank at their rural home in Oxford, Florida, with only a duvet thrown over the top, tethered loosely with bungee cords and safety pins, to try to prevent it from escaping.

The snake weighed only 13 pounds when it was found, when it should have weighed something like 150 pounds. Read More
