At the sentencing, Ashley Wallace said, "I didn't get a chance to say goodbye, and this will be the last time I get a chance. As horrible as it makes me feel, this is goodbye, Mom. As hard as you tried, I survived; and I will survive because now I'm surrounded by people that love me."
Ashley Wallace recently graduated from college with near-perfect grades. She and her sister are trying to move on with their lives, and say they have no intention of ever again contacting their mother, who is serving her sentence in prison.
Castor's mother, Judie Eaton, visits her every month in prison, and is still convinced of her daughter's innocence. Easton has no contact with her granddaughters.
Prosecutors in the nearby county where Castor's first husband, Michael Wallace, died are still considering charging Castor for his murder. Some members of Wallace's family are eager to see the case go forward, 10 years after Michael's death, but authorities are hesitant to proceed because it would force daughters Ashley and Bree to endure another long, public trial.
