Suffer the Little Children Podcast - Episode 130: Santina Cawley (Part 2)

Episode 130: Santina Cawley (Part 2)

Last week, I told you about two-year-old Santina Cawley, a happy little red-haired Irish girl who lit up her family’s lives. I also told you about Santina’s tragic and brutal death and the intensive gardaí investigation that led to the arrest of Karen Harrington, the pregnant girlfriend of Santina’s father, Michael Cawley.

In this episode, I’ll continue where I left off last week, jumping right into testimony given at Karen’s murder trial by gardaí, Karen’s friends and family, and the defendant herself. I’ll also tell you about the aftermath of the trial and how Santina’s murder has affected everyone who loved her.

This is part two of the heartbreaking story of Santina Cawley.
