Man who snatched young girl from bed eligible for parole in August
A man has been sentenced to four and a half years in jail for stealing a three-year-old girl from her bed in the Queensland town of Childers in 2014.
Eden James Kane pleaded guilty to breaking in through a window and taking the girl while she was sleeping.
The incident sparked a state-wide abduction alert.
The court was told over two days Kane washed the girl’s hair, fed her, and watched a movie with her as a desperate search was underway to find her.
With time already served, Kane will be eligible for parole in August.
More to come.
