Let us not forget 3-year-old Sheila Evans every year on September 10 and January 18. She was murdered by Ronald Philips. Justice was served when he was executed on July 26, 2017. We made her one of The 82 murdered children of Unit 1012 and Janusz Korczak’s 190+ children where we will not forget her.
Sep. 10, 1989
Jan. 18, 1993
She was three years old, who was raped and murdered by her mother's boyfriend.
Sheila's mother, Fae Evans (#131399046), died in 2008 of cancer. Fae was serving 13-30 years for child endangerment and involuntary manslaughter because she did nothing to keep her boyfriend, Ronald Phillips, from hurting Sheila. Phillips has a scheduled execution date of September 18, 2014.
Ronald Phillips wasn't executed in September 2014 as scheduled. I think Ohio has had the same problem as other states with what execution drugs to use and their availablity. Here is the current info on his execution.
Name: Ronald R. Phillips Inmate Number: A279-109
Clemency Hearing: TBA
Scheduled Execution: January 21, 2016

Even though Sheila died under such horrible circumstances she is remembered with love by many who never had the chance to meet her. Her short life was hampered by tragedy that of which is unfathomable to believe, however, that is not the sum of who she was. Sheila was a loving child who deserved much better from those around her and hopefully she now has some peace. Let us learn the value of our children and the value of Sheila Marie Evans.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — Her name was Sheila Evans.
She was 3-years-old when she was raped and murdered by her mother's boyfriend, Ronald Phillips. Wednesday, the State of Ohio put Phillips to death for that crime.
Saturday, Sheila's family celebrated her life.
Renee Mundell, Sheila's half sister, said the family went through every emotion last week leading up to Phillips' execution.
"One minute is sad because of what happened, the other minute it is up because we can honor her after waiting for twenty four years," Mundell said.
Evans' family said they had waited for justice for more than 20 years since Phillips admitted to Sheila's rape and murder. The memorial Saturday involved a balloon launch at the cemetery in Lake Milton. People stopped by Sheila's teddy bear headstone to pay respects before the launch.
"We were glad the governor and the supreme court let it go," Mundell said. "Wednesday was closure for us and justice for her."
