Daniels gets life for murdering 2 BG residents

TOLEDO -- Craig Daniels received a sentence of life in prison without chance of parole on two counts of murder on Monday in Wood County Common Pleas Court.

Daniels killed Alicia Castillion and John Mitchell in the early hours of March 29 of this year.

Both Castillion's and Mitchell's relatives spoke in court. Daniels had nothing to say in response.

Castillion was home with her boyfriend, Mitchell, when Daniels entered the home and shot them both. Castillion's daughters, Katie and Madison, heard the gunshots and ran to their mother's room where Mitchell was bleeding but still alive. 

"He said to them, 'Don't worry... everything's going to be okay,' so she thought Mitchell was okay," said Castillion's mother, Kathy Newlove after the tragedy. "So she went running to her mother who was on the floor and Katie ran and got the phone and called 911."

On the phone, Katie was asked by the 911 operator if she knew who shot the pair. She said it was Craig Daniels, her stepfather.

Daniels is the father of two of Castillion's children. According to court documents, he had a 10-year history of beating, stalking and threatening Alicia. 

Kathy Newlove is determined to help other women -- and children -- avoid a similar trauma. "Alicia's Voice" is a charity working to establish a family justice center in Wood County with all the resources a domestic violence victim would need under one roof. If you need help in Lucas County, call the YMCA at 419-241-7386.

In Wood County, a variety of resources is available on the website www.aliciasvoice.org.
