A Nova Scotia woman murdered her only child after she was given an ultimatum by her boyfriend, a court was told.
Penny Boudreau pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree murder in the death of 12-year-old Karissa Boudreau last year in Bridgewater.
She was sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 20 years.
According to an agreed statement of facts, Boudreau killed the girl after her boyfriend told her she had to choose between him or her daughter.
On Jan. 27, 2008, Boudreau drove the girl to a remote spot near the town, took her out of the car, knelt on her chest and strangled her with a piece of twine.
Boudreau could feel the girl struggling beneath her.
Karissa's last words were, "Mommy, don't."
Boudreau then put the body in the car and drove to a spot along the LaHave River. She pulled down Karissa's pants as she dragged the body to give the impression that the girl had been sexually assaulted.
After dumping the body over the embankment, Boudreau went home and told police her daughter had run away. She also called friends and teachers to spread the story.
The grim story of what happened to the 12-year-old girl came out as a result of an undercover police investigation.
Boudreau gave the details to officers posing as organized crime bosses, who said they could help her destroy evidence held by police.
The story of Karissa has gripped the small Nova Scotia community ever since her mother made a tearful plea at a news conference for her daughter's safe return.
At the time, Boudreau said they had had a fight in the parking lot of a grocery store, and when she came back to the car, Karissa was gone.
Several searches of the area turned up no sign of the young girl.
Two weeks later, a passerby discovered Karissa's frozen body on the banks of the LaHave River.
Boudreau was charged with first-degree murder last June.

Footonte ; if anybody thinks I enjoyed posting this - then think again. I keep flicking back to the photo of the innocent 12 -year -old girl victim and cry.It's a striking resemblance to one of my daughters at that age. Evil is running rampant and I fail to understand why such a thing happens? However, my faith keeps me balanced because judgment day is coming. Have NO doubts about this.

Perhaps the victim didnt have a father who cared about her.
