Aiden Fucci, 16, sentenced to life for killing classmate, cheerleader

A St. Johns County courtroom judge in Florida on Friday sentenced 16-year-old Aiden Fucci to life in prison for the first-degree murder of 13-year-old cheerleader Tristyn Bailey, her friend and classmate, in a case that has drawn national attention due to the brutality of the murder and the age of the victim and perpetrator.

“Hereous, atrocious and cruel”, a crime orchestrated for no other reason than to feel what it is like to kill someone. This factor alone is why Judge. R. Lee Smith said there could be only one fit sentence for Fucci: life in prison.

It was not about greed, retaliation, revenge, rejection or an uncontrollable tantrum, Smith said in court on Friday. “This crime had no motive.”
