Mother gets 26 years in abuse, slaying of adoptive daughter

By Washington Post editors

A Prince William County woman who left her 13-year-old adopted daughter to die in a frigid creek was sentenced to 26 years in prison Friday, marking the end of a criminal case that revealed shortcomings in the county’s policies on child abuse.

Alfreedia L. Gregg-Glover, 45, dumped her daughter, Alexis “Lexie” Agyepong-Glover, still alive, in an icy Woodbridge area creek in January 2009. Then she reported the girl missing. Lexie died of drowning and exposure to the cold.

Gregg-Glover did not offer any apology or regrets during the hearing in Prince William County Circuit Court, and only answered the judge’s yes-or-no questions. Her attorney said she had instructed him to not speak on her behalf.
