February 22, 2013 in Top Stories

Lisa Ameen Crevitt, who admitted taking LSD and tossing her toddler into a river canal, is up for parole in March after 27 years in prison.

The child’s father is fighting to keep her behind bars.

“She doesn’t deserve freedom,” Jeff Crevitt said.

Lisa Crevitt was sentenced to life in prison in 1985 for the murder of her 21/2-year-old daughter, Nikki. She had claimed the girl was abducted May 16, 1985, from a store in what was then Battlefield Mall in Vicksburg.
