DOYLESTOWN, Pa. -- A mother charged in the death of her adopted 14-year-old daughter gave chilling testimony Wednesday in a Pennsylvania courtroom.
Sara Packer took the stand against Jacob Sullivan, 46, smirking as she told jurors that she hated her daughter, Grace, saying "Grace has become, for the lack of a better term, a non-entity. I wanted her to go away."

PHILADELPHIA — A Pennsylvania woman charged in the rape, murder and dismemberment of her adopted 14-year-old daughter took in 30 foster kids before her then-husband was deemed a sexual predator.
State officials on Friday confirmed that former adoption worker Sara Packer and her ex-husband fostered the children from 2000 to 2010, when they led a transient life in northeast Pennsylvania.
The state's Department of Human Services said it was reviewing the family's history leading up to the torture death of adopted daughter Grace Packer.
