Child killed when she asks for a snack

Holt, Michigan
5-year-old Luna Younger is stabbed and her body set on fire by her stepfather after asking for a snack

Thomas McClellan (25) stated on November 1, Luna had awakened him from a nap and refused to leave the room, causing him to “snap.” He stabbed his 5-year-old stepdaughter at least 5 times and covered her body with blankets and paper towels which he doused with vodka and set on fire.

McClellan, who had no previous criminal record, was sentenced to life in prison, the mandatory sentence for murder in the state of Michigan. He was also convicted of first-degree arson and first-degree child abuse.
