CODY CASHION FIRED A FLARE INTO A HOME, SPARKING THE FIRE THAT KILLED THREE CHILDREN. THOSE CLOSE TO CASHION CROSSED PATHS WITH THE VICTIMS’ FAMILY AFTER COURT AND THE TWO SIDES HAD WORDS. WLKY’S ERICA COGHILL WAS AT THE FLOYD COUNTY COURTHOUSE THIS MORNING WHEN IT HAPPENED. ERICA VICKI, RICK THE SCUFFLE HAPPENED HERE OUTSIDE THE COURTHOUSE AND SHERIFF’S DEPUTIES HAD TO BREAKITUP. BUT MOMENTS EARLIER, THE VICTIMS’ FAMILY FELT RELIEF AS A JUDGE SENTENCED CASHION TO 65 YEARS FOR EACH COUNT OF MURDER AND 50 FOR ARSON. THEY WILL RUN.
CONCURRENTLY. Thank you Jesus, oh God. .A WAVE OF RELIEF CAME OVER THE HUGHES’ FAMILY AS A JUDGE SENTENCED CODY CASHION TO THE MAXIMUM. I didn’t know what was going to happen I just prayed I just kept praying. THE HUGHES FAMILY HAS WAITED FOR JUSTICE SINCE JANUARY WHEN CASHION SHOT A FLARE INTO A NEW ALBANY HOME, SPARKING A FIRE THAT KILLED 2YEAR OLD TRINITY, 4YEAROLD TYRESE AND 6YEAROLD TAIZAH HUGHES. THEIR SISTER, TATYANA, WAS BADLY BURNED. It is a miracle she is still alive after everything she endured..
TWO DAYS BEFORE CASHION’S SENTENCING, THE FAMILY CELEBRATED TATYANA’S SIXTH BIRTHDAY. SHE’S BEEN TO NEARLY EVERY HEARING IN THE CASE, BUT WAS NOT IN COURT MONDAY. After such a great weekend of celebration of her life, birthday, I didn’t want her to sit here today because I knew it would be so emotional. CODY CASHION SHOWED EMOTION IN A TEARFUL APOLOGY TO THE VICTIMS’ FAMILY. BUT IT WAS TOO LITTLE TOO LATE FOR THE HUGHES FAMILY. It fell on deaf ears because after everything there is no remorse. CASHION SAID I KNOW IT.
Teen receives maximum sentence in fire that killed 3 kids
DOESN’T MEAN BUT I AM SORRY. That use of bad language in a courtroom in front of victim’s fam. is prob an indicator of where we are at with this character. IN MAKING HER DECISION, THE JUDGE FOCUSED ON THE VICTIMS AGES. AND 19 YEAROLD CASHION’S LENGTHY CRIMINAL RECORD, WHICH STARTED WHEN HE WAS TWELVE. It is the most extensive juvenile history I’ve ever seen and I’ve been doing this for 28 years. CASHION WON’T BE ELIGIBLE FOR PROBATION UNTIL 2046. SOT My grandbabies got justice today, they got justice today..
