Maddie Clifton's murderer appealing life sentence .
A man convicted as a teenager of one of Jacksonville’s most notorious crimes is appealing his life sentence to the Florida Supreme Court. Joshua Phillips, now 34, was convicted at age 14 of killing his 8-year-old neighbor Maddie Clifton and stuffing her body under his waterbed. The 1998 murder shocked the city and drew national attention. Phillips was originally sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He qualified for a resentencing under a U.S. Supreme Court decision that found juvenile life sentences without the possibility of parole to be unconstitutional.
