Update: Daniel Meade/Kiana O’Neil


Kiana O’Neil

On December 26, 2013, we reported on the killing of 14-year old Kiana O’Neil.

On December 23, 2013, Kiana was shot and killed by her stepfather when coming through a basement window at their Colorado Springs home. Her stepfather, Daniel Meade, said that he thought it was an illegal intruder.

Colorado has a law that is coined “Make My Day.” It is a Castle Doctrine law, and because of it, a grand jury declined to charge Daniel Meade for killing his stepdaughter.


R.I.P. Kiana.
