SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- The so-called nasty neighbor from Trenton, Jennifer Petkov, speaks publicly for the first time since the death of the young girl she taunted, Kathleen Edward.
Petkov appeared on the "Dr. Phil" show. She was asked if she felt remorse or wanted to apologize for harassing an innocent little girl.
"I'm sorry for everything. I wish that we could go back to when we were all neighbors and would watch each other's kids and could rely on each other because sometimes all you have is your neighbors," said Petkov. "I don't expect your forgiveness, but I'm sorry if I said anything ever or did anything ever that hurt you."
"Jennifer tormented me the last year of my daughter's life. Then after my daughter died, I never, ever had a chance to grieve because I was too busy defending myself and too busy reading nasty posts and seeing pictures of my dying granddaughter and dead daughter. I want to grieve for my daughter and granddaughter without being tormented by Jennifer Petkov," Rebecca Rose said.

Petkov became the target of international scorn after her appearance on FOX 2. Her online taunts took aim at then seven-year-old Kathleen Edward and her mother, who both suffered from Huntington's disease.
Kathleen lost her battle with the disease this month.
