Jury Finds Doug Grant Guilty in Bizarre Bathtub Drowning

Though Faylene's family had hoped for, and backed a first degree murder charge, they said they are just relieved to finally have some closure. Faylene's daughter from her first marriage, Jenna Stradling, said it was difficult to face her stepdad at trial, but nothing compared with losing her mother.

"If I could say something to Doug, I would tell him that not only did you take away my mom, but he took away my best friend. My mom's not going to be at my wedding. My mom hasn't been able to meet my first boyfriend. She's never going to come back. She's never going to be here," Jenna said.

Her brother, Austin Stradling, is trying to find peace, even though he, too, believes Doug Grant murdered his mother.

"My mom was extremely forgiving," Austin said. "But for some reason, I have ... even though I do know in my heart that he did do it, for some reason my mom left something behind with me to forgive him. And to not go crazy. And to take the higher road."
