A woman goes on trial again Monday for charges that she was involved in the death of a nine-year-old boy.

Christopher Foggs of Ayden died after getting shot, playing in his front yard in April 2005.

28-year-old Vonzeil Adams went on trial in March for murder, thirteen counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and three counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling for the death of the little boy. The judge declared a mistrial after the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict.

    If you cant give her the death penalty and save all of us taxpayers some money, then at least give her life. Take away her children like she took away from little Christophers mom.

    Well this is what I think that if she was the one to want someone to shoot someone she should be the one in there. I watch alot of crime shows and everyone thats i the car at the time and can be place at the scene are guilty. Also woman boost men all the time and the woman gets more time than the man. Also the people who played apart in the whole the should be put away to. A mother has lost a child and he can't be brought back. All because somebody thinks that they are better than one another. So like I say they all shouild be put away for a good amount of time to think about what they have done. What if was there child they wouldn't want to see anyone walk free. So they all need some time in there at least 30 to 40 years or just life. Then they would know what it's like to be away from there kids and family. They should thought things through and tried to handle it some other way. So please they need to be in there just as much as that boy.God is watching and all will be punish.Thak u!

    Where is the justice for a mom that has lost her baby. It is not fair that Adams gets to walk around and live her life with her children.Ms. Taft will never get to see her baby again.This is not fair she needs to be locked up behind bars!!!!!!!!!She needs to get just as much time as Jaoul Green if not more.She should not have been in a argument involving some teenage girls she should have been home taking care of her children......that's what a real mother would have been doing.

    For all that she has done to destroy this family I hope she receives LIFE,,,, She stated in court the last time she had "roots" working fo her. With all the charges she is facing she better hope the "roots" have spread and become a tree. What a "witch" she is
