(KMOV.com) – The parents of a Springfield, Mo. girl who was kidnapped and murdered in February are suing her alleged killer.
Stacey Barfield and Markus Owens filed a wrongful death lawsuit Friday against Craig Michael Wood.
In the lawsuit, Hailey’s parents said they have “suffered emotionally and in the future will suffer, by reason of the injuries sustained by and from Hailey Owens’ death.” The lawsuit is seeking financial damages to cover costs in connection with Owens’ death, and also seeking punitive damages.
Wood has been charged with first degree murder, armed criminal action, and child kidnapping.
