In slaying of Pasco mom, son faces trial
Twenty-five years ago Donna Young wanted a baby more than anything else. Her doctor warned her of dire consequences because of her multiple sclerosis. But the call to motherhood overrode any concern Donna Young had for her own health. Ryan Young entered the world on Dec. 16,1982, healthy and normal. On Jan. 20, the state of Florida will put him on trial. Detectives and prosecutors say Ryan, 26, put a pillow over his mother's face and smothered her. Donna Young gave her son life. His own words could ensure he spends the rest of it in prison. | Audio: Hear Ryan Young in interviews with Pasco detectives.
