Baker is now serving a minimum 25-year prison sentence and she agreed to talk with Eyewitness News.

Dressed in her prison uniform and wearing handcuffs, Baker talked with Eyewitness News for more than an hour about her stepdaughter Zahra.

    Zahra’s dad ran off with her, kidnapped her. By the time her poor mother found her she was dead. Now, I could be wrong, but I thought that had been the original story. I have no doubt the dad was involved in her murder/death.
