The man convicted of killing a ten-year-old Springfield girl in 2014 has been sentenced to death. A Greene County judge handed down that sentence Thursday (1/11) to 49-year-old Craig Wood of Ash Grove. In November, a jury found Wood guilty of first degree murder and child kidnapping in the death of Hailey Owens (pictured). The jury deadlocked on whether Wood should get a life sentence without parole or the death penalty. Judge Thomas Mountjoy ruled Thursday afternoon that Wood will get the death penalty.
