Chris Neal spoke yesterday, moments before 47-year-old Daniel
Self was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Self was convicted last week in the March 2003 shooting death of
24-year-old Leah Gee, who was seven months pregnant at the time.

Doctors delivered a baby boy by Caesarean section, but he died
two weeks later.

Neal confronted Self for the first time in court Thursday,
saying he would try hard to forgive the man found guilty of his
mother's death.

Self has maintained his innocence, claiming Gee shot herself.
