Special Needs Girl Now Finds Herself Sentenced to 30 Years for Attempting to Do THIS at 14 Yrs Old!

A horrific crime has left a teenage girl with virtually no future — and it’s her own fault. Morgan Arnold was 14 when she convinced her boyfriend to brutally murder her father.

A 17-year-old Maryland girl has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for orchestrating her father’s stabbing death with the help of her mentally disabled older boyfriend when she was 14.

Morgan Lane Arnold was charged as an adult and subsequently pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the May 2013 killing of her father, 58-year-old businessman and blogger Dennis Lane.

On Wednesday, Howard County Judge William Tucker handed down the 30-year sentence, calling it ‘one of the most difficult decisions that this court has ever had to make.’

Prosecutors argued that Arnold and her then-boyfriend, Jason Bulmer, who was 19 at the time of the slaying but still in the 10th grade, plotted to kill Lane for two months, outlining their murderous plans in a series of text message exchanges and Skype conversations.

Authorities said Arnold left the door into the basement at her family home in Ellicott City unlocked, allowing Bulmer to slip in and stab Lane to death with a butcher knife in May 2013.

The plan was for Bulmer also to kill Lane’s fiancee, Denise Geiger, but the mortally wounded 58-year-old man was able to subdue his attacker, giving Geiger a chance to pry the knife from the teen’s hands.

After he was found covered in blood along with Arnold in her bedroom, Bulmer told police, ‘I am her boyfriend. I stabbed him and she told me to do it.’

The teen, who suffers from a learning disorder and has the mind of a child between the ages of 9-12, according to psychiatrists, claimed that his girlfriend wanted her father dead ‘because she was sick of him.’

During pre-trial proceedings in 2014, a forensic psychiatrist testified that Arnold, who was said to be suffering from Asperger’s syndrome and a host of other mental-health issues, told her she was ‘glad’ her father was dead.

… Dennis Lane’s sister, Kelly Lane, described her niece in her written victim impact statement as ‘smart and manipulative,’ and said that Bulmer was ‘her first victim.’

This girl may have had some intellectual disabilities, but she was clearly intelligent enough to manipulate her boyfriend into committing the crime, and able to plan extensively for the crime over the course of several months. The judge did the right thing, putting her away for such a long time.
