Marie Synder, 32, admitted that she and Echo Butler, 26, physically abused, verbally abused, and humiliated the girls, according to emaciated remains of the two girls were found in a shallow grave where the couple and children were living with Butler's parents in Hepburn Township, Penn.Echo Butler’s parents, Ronald and Michele Butler, lived with the two women and authorities charged them with helping to starve the children then assisting them with covering up the evidence of the abuse and deaths.“They were being starved and beaten every day,” the girls’ mother admitted while on the stand.

She’s been charged with criminal homicide along with Echo Butler.“Echo would grab their throats so they couldn’t breathe, and choke them until their eyes would roll back into their heads,” Snyder said.The girls’ bodies were found after an investigation began into concerns of Snyder’s 7-year-old son not attending school, according to court documents reported by local TV station WOLF.

Lycoming County Children and Youth Services visited Snyder’s home when they discovered the two girls, Nicole Elisabeth and Jasmine Jean Snyder, were missing.After child welfare workers couldn’t locate the girls — who were supposed to be 11 and 8, respectively — police were called to search the home.
