"Because of your actions, Bryan can't go to the bathroom by himself," Collins said. "He has to wear adult diapers. I hate having to say that out loud, but it shows the severity of what you did.
"Being here, I hope to see one tiny bit of remorse in order to not think you are both that despicable, but I don't. How can we begin to consider forgiveness when you aren't even asking for it," Collins said.
Collins also read aloud in court a statement written by Stow's wife that was directed to the defendants:
"Our son Tyler's first word was ball. His next word was daddy. And when they started playing catch, Bryan promised to play catch with him every day, and he did until you took that away from him. Our daughter, Tabitha, loved to ride bikes with her daddy and he did that every day he could, again, until you both took that away.
"Based on your actions, it is completely obvious that you have no respect for human life."
