It's been eight years since 5 month old Baby Brianna was murdered by her father and uncle. Her death shocked the community and prompted people to take action. When Brianna died the maximum sentence for child abuse resulting in death was 18 years in prison. District Attorney Susana Martinez fought to get both men lengthier sentences.
