Name: Sydney Yvonne-Nickole Dailey

Age: 13

Place of residence: Tulsa

Died: March 15, 2008

What happened: Sydney was stabbed in the chest, back and head 10 times at her home. Former schoolmate Montoya Harris, now 15, pleaded no contest in February to first-degree murder. Harris could be released from state custody by her 20th birthday if she completes a treatment plan.

Harris was upset because she thought Sydney stole her boyfriend, police said.

Other: Sydney's grandmother Linda Mathews said at sentencing that Sydney “was very loving, energetic, with untapped potential and a zeal for life,” according to the Tulsa World.
