The family of a 3-year-old girl abused to death by her foster parents is grateful after a Greenville, South Carolina, jury found suspect Ariel Robinson, a former contestant on Food Network’s “Worst Cooks in America,” guilty of homicide by child abuse.
Judge Letitia Verdin sentenced Robinson to life in prison for the January 2021 death of Victoria “Tori” Rose Smith following the jury’s verdict after a four-day-long trial.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It is a huge sense of relief that Victoria did get justice in the end. Obviously, we’re still devastated that she’s gone, but we are very grateful that the police and the prosecution and the judge…did such a wonderful job, and they did such a wonderful job that the jury could plainly see that she had committed this crime, and she’s going to serve her life sentence for it,” Michelle Wooten Urps, Smith’s great aunt, told Fox News Digital of her family’s reaction to the verdict.
In regard to Robinson’s statements on the witness stand, Michelle Wooten Urps, Smith’s great aunt, said, “Her testimony honestly left me with a lot of confusion, she was obviously trying to deflect the blame. … She never actually placed the blame on anyone. She said it without saying it.”
Robinson testified during the trial that Smith’s brother, who was only 7 at the time, would get angry with his sister and may have contributed to her death. However, the evidence presented in court proved otherwise.
Following a four day trial, the jury took just about an hour and a half before reaching a verdict. Robinson was sentenced to life in prison.
Christy Kednocker Sustakovitch, assistant solicitor for the Greenville County Thirteenth Judicial Circuit, said, “This jury had to see and hear things that were truly horrific. We are very thankful for the verdict in this tragic case.”
“There are no winners in a case like this one. We can’t bring Tori back but she will always live on in our memories. I’ve learned in these cases, the best you can hope for is justice and the jury brought exactly that. May sweet Victoria Rose Smith rest in eternal peace forever,” Sustakovitch added.
