Paula Sims is presently serving a life sentence for first-degree murder. Her 13-day-old daughter, Loralei, was found dead in the woods near her home in Brighton in 1986, and six-week-old daughter, Heather, was found in 1989 in a trash can in West Alton, Mo. In both cases, she claimed the children were abducted.

Paula Sims was convicted in 1990 for first-degree murder for the death of Heather and a few months after that she entered a guilty plea to concealment of a homicidal death with her first daughter, Loralei.

Robert Sims and Paula Sims divorced after she was convicted.
