It took 15 years, but finally justice has been served. Sarah Key-Marer, tragically lost her four-year-old daughter in Nov. 2000, when her ex threw their little girl off a cliff. The reason? To avoid paying child support — so disgusting!

Sarah Key-Marer cried tears of joy on May 13 after the verdict was read that her ex Cameron Brown would be serving life in prison for tossing their daughter Lauren Sarene Key, 4, off a cliff. He had been charged with first-degree murder and found guilty after a long, long trial. Now Sarah can finally have some closure.

Mom Waited 15 Years For Justice After Ex Killed Their Daughter

While murderer Cameron Brown disgustingly showed no emotion as his verdict was read in Los Angeles Superior Court, Sarah broke down and began crying in the gallery, according to the Daily Mail. He was previously first-degree murder, and found guilty on May 13.

Sarah’s tears were that of relief, happiness and closure. She waited 15 long years for justice to be served regarding the death of her young daughter in 2000. The little girl Lauren was taken to a cliff (Inspiration Point) in California by a man she trusted — her dad. Sadly, it was there that she was murdered at the hands of her father, when he tossed her defenseless body off a 120-foot cliff.

He had been in a battle with Lauren’s mother over child support payments when he decided his only way out of paying would be to kill their child, according to the outlet. His attorney claimed that Cameron loved and cared for Lauren and that the girl was playing near the cliff’s edge and accidentally slipped and fell to her death.

The jury’s decision marked the end of the third trial in the case. Previously, two juries were deadlocked over whether or not Cameron intentionally threw his daughter or whether her fall was an accident.

Sarah Tearfully Thanks Jurors

After the verdict was read, Sarah rushed out to the hallway and began to hug jurors while saying, thank you to them.

She told the press, “All I ever wanted was that he would take responsibility for what happened that day. It’s all been really hard. The pain. We just learned to live with the pain.”

A beautiful memorial to Lauren now overlooks Inspiration Point where her life was selfishly taken away 15 years ago.

Our thoughts are with Sarah and her family and friends at this time.
