Mother, in act of forgiveness, hugs daughter’s killer in court

MIAMI — The mother of a 13-year-old girl who was shot and killed by a 17-year-old boy showed an extraordinarily act of kindness when she hugged her daughter’s killer in a Miami courtroom.

According to WPLG-TV, the girl, Gina, was accidentally shot and killed by Jordan Howe who was showing off a gun last year.

Gina’s mother, Addy Guzman, orchestrated a plea deal that allows Jordan to spend a year in a juvenile detention center and then spend time talking about the dangers of guns. He could have faced many years in prison.
