Taft's Daughter: Healing Process Continues

After an emotional ending to the sentencing phase of Jason Williford's trial Thursday where all four of Kathy Taft's children addressed the court and their mother's killer, one of her daughter's is back home in Greenville talking about the ordeal.

Paige Fuqua says that she feels that justice has been served and that the guilty verdict and sentencing are enough.

Fuqua says that she and her three siblings have all grieved differently -- which was apparent when each one addressed the court .

Fuqua maintains that Williford is not remorseful for his crimes--and was not surprised when he did not address the court before he was led away. She says though she is not disappointed he was not sentenced to death. Fuqua says, "To me personally living in prison for the rest of your life, especially as a 30-year-old man, he's got a long time to live, a long time to think about it, he's got a long time to be locked up. To me that's a fate worse than death."

Fuqua says the healing is still a process and that their lives have not been ruined by Williford.
