Couple Indicted On Murder Charges

The father and stepmother of a 10-year-old Winchester girl found dead in her home have been indicted on murder charges.

Patrick and Joy Watkins told 27 NEWSFIRST in an exclusive interview in March that their daughter's death was an accident.

Investigators paint a much different picture though, saying Michaela was found badly beaten and burned.

According to an autopsy, Michaela had been dead at least 5 hours before help was called for.
