• More time could be added to Elisa Baker's prison sentence

    Updated:

    CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. - Channel 9 expects to find out by the end of this year how much more time will be added to the prison sentence of Zahra Baker’s stepmother.

    Elisa Baker pleaded guilty to prescription drug charges in January.

    That case is not related to her sentence of at least 15 years in prison for Zahra’s murder.

    A judge could add as much as 20 years to that for the drug case.

    Investigators still have not said if a skull found back in April is Zahra’s.

    A hunter found it along Winkler Way in Caldwell County.  Channel 9 is expecting to learn whose skull it is later this month.
