Mother to face sentencing in daughter's death

A Prince William County judge Friday ruled that a woman who left her adopted 13-year-old daughter for dead in a frigid creek is not mentally incompetent and can be sentenced for the crime.

Alfreedia L. Gregg-Glover, 45, has pleaded guilty to abusing and killing Alexis "Lexie" Agyepong-Glover and of lying to police about it.

Defense attorney John V. Notarianni in October requested a mental health evaluation after a nurse at the county jail expressed concerns about Gregg-Glover’s mental health. Under Virginia law, a defendant who is found to be mentally ill after being convicted but before sentencing may be sent to a mental hospital instead of prison.

Gregg-Glover sparked a massive police search in January, when she said that Lexie had run away. The girl’s body was found days later in a Woodbridge area creek. Police said Gregg-Glover had dumped her there, alive, and the girl died of drowning and exposure to the cold.

Judge Craig D. Johnston scheduled a Feb. 12 sentencing hearing.

it very sad that a mother would do that to her child, even if the child was adopted
