Months after being arrested in connection with the death of their 3-year-old daughter, a Utah couple appeared in court while prosecutors reviewed evidence regarding their case.
According to the Inquisitr, police were called to the home of Brenda Emile and Miller Costello in July 2017. When they arrived at the home in Ogden, officers were horrified to find the lifeless body of 3-year-old Angelina Costello on the floor of an empty room.
Now, the parents could face the death penalty if proven guilty of aggravated murder in the case of Angelina’s death.
The girl’s body was wrapped in a blanket when police found her. Officer Sitka Hrabal testified that she could not believe the girl was 3 years old after seeing her gaunt body.
“I was told she was 3,” the officer testified. “She looked like a Holocaust victim.”
