LAS VEGAS -- The children of murdered school teacher Mary Beth Franta are speaking out for the first time. Their mother is dead, their father is accused of her murder and now they have been hit with a huge bill.
Their mother's vehicle, which police suspect transported her body, has been sitting in a local tow yard since mid-November. The towing company wants several thousand dollars to release it to Franta's children.
Late last year, Brandon and Ashley Franta effectively lost both of their parents. Police found their mom's body in a desert lot and arrested their dad for her murder. In the months that have followed, 24-year-old Brandon has assumed responsibility for his parent's affairs.
Brandon Franta last saw his mom's car in late October during his dad's birthday weekend. Now, it sits in a fenced off part of The Ewing Brother's tow yard.
