THE heartbroken parents of a 14-year-old girl beaten to death with a hammer have spoken of their “torment” after challenging their daughter’s murderer in court.
Jordin Roache, 21, admitted to the killing of 14-old Kaytlynn Cargill, after she went to buy marijuana from him.
The teen’s body was found at a landfill site in 2017 as her then 16-year-old killer was charged as an adult with first degree murder.
Following five years in incarceration and several delays to proceedings, Roache faced to court this week where he was addressed by Cargill’s parents.
In a victim’s statement to the court, Bo Cargill, the teen girl’s father, said: “I am tormented every day about what she endured.
“It plays out in my mind. My hope is that every day you remember what you did to Kaytlynn.”

The girl’s body was found in landfill two days later, as investigators later found an apartment where Cargill’s blood was found on the walls and floors.
They also recovered a hammer recovered at the scene which had traces of his DNA on it.
Kaytlynn’s emotional mother Trish said: “The defendant brutally beat my daughter, terrorized and tossed her away like trash — a fate no human deserves, and especially not Kaytlynn.
