Both Ronald Maddux and Wanda Gibson Maddux were convicted of murder and sentenced to 99 years in prison. The Melisha Gibson Memorial Foundation was set up a few days after the little girl's death to prevent future tragedies. Shaffer said he was sitting in a Chattanooga hotel room the night after Melisha died and heard the story on television. "I wrote the song just for me," he said. "It's a song no one was ever supposed to hear." All proceeds from the record sale will go to the foundation, v which has been instrumental in setting up a multi-disciplinary training team program to help prevent child abuse. * Obituaries Really firm gets award DE£JLA SOUTHWARD Mrs. Delia M.
