'Miss Irresistible' Denies Killing Friends

"My daughter didn't die with a car wreck," he read. "She wasn't hit by lightning. She perished at the hands of two evil people, cold, calculating, heartless. I asked my wife what will hurt you most. Her picture never ages while we do, Christmas, birthdays, my daughter Tiffany's college graduation. There is always an absence, always a silence."

Adelbert Sanchez' sister, Nicole Sanchez, also read a statement. "As we come to a close to this chapter in our lives, we will walk away from this courtroom and forget about Christine," she read. "But Christine will think about the four precious innocent lives she brutally took that day, and the families that she destroyed, every day for the rest of her life."

The judge addressed the convict.

"Mrs. Paolilla, the jury having found you guilty of capital murder, the state having chosen not to seek the death penalty in this case, it's now my duty to sentence you to life confinement in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice institutional division," he said. "Do you have anything to say before I sentence you?"

Paolilla shook her head "no," breaking into tears.

Today Christine Paolilla, her high school's former "Miss Irresistible," is serving a life sentence at a women's penitentiary in Gatesville, Texas. Another school year is under way at Clear Lake High. And Rachael Koloroutis's family, like the families of the other victims, clings to memories of the child it's lost.

"We live as if she's still a part of us," said Tiffany Koloroutis. "And that's not going to change."
