Richmond Phillips was sentenced to 2 life sentences plus 20 years and is eligible for release on .

His appeal (see link) includes:

The State charged Mr. Phillips with the first-degree murders of his ex-girlfriend, Wynetta Wright, and their eleven-month-old daughter, Jaylin Wright, which took place on May 31, 2011. Wynetta died of a gunshot wound to the head. Her body was found in a park near the Hillcrest Heights Community Center in Prince George's County. Jaylin died of hyperthermia as a result of being left in a hot vehicle for an extended period of time. Her body was found in Wynetta's car in a parking lot near the park. Mr. Phillips admitted to meeting with Wynetta in the park in the early morning hours of May 31, but denied any involvement in her death or Jaylin's death.

The police obtained DNA samples from the crime scenes, the victims, and Mr. Phillips, which were tested in June 2011 by forensic chemist Jessica Charak of the Prince George's County Police Department Crime Laboratory ("Prince George's County Laboratory" or "Laboratory"). Two samples are relevant to this appeal: a buccal swab from Mr. Phillips, and a sample obtained from the steering wheel of Wynetta's car. Based on Ms. Charak's analysis, she concluded that the steering wheel sample was consistent with Mr. Phillips' DNA profile and, therefore, he could not be excluded as a contributor to the sample. Ms. Charak found that the steering wheel sample also contained genetic material from Wynetta, Jaylin, and at least two additional unknown contributors. Ms. Charak calculated that "[t]he chances of selecting an unrelated individual from the random population who would be included as a possible contributor to the mixed DNA profile obtained from the evidence sample ... are approximately ... 1 in 2.93 million individuals in the African American population."

Take Away

Young ladies are often very flattered when a much older man is interested in them sexually or romantically. The truth is they are talking to someone younger because they are more trusting and easier to manipulate and/or use. If someone who is considerably older then you shows interest, if you procede at all, do so cautiously.
