Morgan Leppert accused in the brutal murder of a Putnam County man in 2009 was re-sentenced this week to life with parole.
Leppert, the self-described “blue-eyed devil,” had been sentenced to life without parole in the murder of 66-year-old James Stewart.
She was 15 at the time, and she and her boyfriend, Toby Lowry, killed the disabled man and stole his car.
Lowry pleaded guilty to avoid the death penalty.
Morgan was tried and convicted, but under the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that teens under the age of 18 cannot be sentenced to life without parole she was eligible for a re-sentencing hearing.
The judge gave her life with parole chances. Her case will be reviewed in 25 years.

Viewers heard the chilling laughter of child murderer Morgan Leppert in police interview tapes from ITV documentary Children Who Kill. The show saw presenter Susanna Reid meet Leppert, who was labelled the ‘blue eyed devil’ aged 15 when she was convicted of the murder of an elderly disabled man back in 2008. The 62-year-old man named James Stewart, was stabbed multiple times in his Florida home with metal rods and a knife, before being suffocated with a plastic bag by the teenager and her 22-year-old boyfriend Toby Lee Lowry.
Susanna met Morgan on the show as she serves a life sentence without parole, where she states how she was blinded by the relationship with her boyfriend. Asked what she’d say to her 15-year-old self, Morgan said: ‘I wish I wasn’t so naïve and gullible. I wish I could have listened. It was like a dream. It was like every girl’s dream where you have a guy and I was the last man on earth I thought he was going to be with.
He turned out be a monster. He took my life away from me. ‘What stopped me running away from him? I was scared of getting killed, so I let him do what he did because I was scared of him. I wish I was smart enough then like I am now.’
The interview was interspersed with old police interview tapes, where teenage Morgan can be seen chuckling as she confirms her boyfriend is 22
Asked about the age gap at the time, Morgan said: ‘He told me he was going to do whatever he had to just to be with me. But I didn’t know he was going to take it that far.’
Her boyfriend escaped the death penalty and received the same life sentence as his 15-year-old girlfriend, with Morgan fighting back the tears in her taped audio confession.
