She starved and neglected her to death and she can be out in @ 12 years if she is "good" ? I am appalled. And shame on her husband for knowing better than to leave her there.

That only applies if prosecuted on the outside. IF it was charged federally I believe you have to do 85% of your time. As far as the husband goes if he was also charged via court martial their penal system is way worse than most civilian institutions.

85% is better, but still not enough. These people make me sick. My ex lived next door to them. They felt awful when they heard what had happened. They didn't know she was starving. She looked chubby, not starved. It was her body swelling, we now know.
Poor baby.

Actually in NM prisons, you can get 2 days off for every day of good behavior.
I know someone sentenced to 15 years that was out in 5.

I'm sickened by this! She deserves the same type of death she gave that little girl! Starve her and dehydrate her until she's dead!

Why would this mother get 25 years for killing her daughter and so many others who have killed their babies in more violent ways get 6 years? Im beginning to wonder if the New Mexico Judicial system is getting better or worse.

My concern is does she have access to that game in prision and can she legally have another child?

This case was prosecuted and sentencing brought forth in a Federal court according to the article; therefore NM has nothing to do with the sentencing. Federal sentence rules apply.

Since the act was committed at Holloman, which is Federal property, it falls under Federal jurisdiction.

Still, in my opinion, 25 years is not near long enough.

Now there's not much difference between Alamo and HO anymore! Might as well move the city limits all the way to the front gate!

Isn't the chain of command suppose to do health and welfare checks as kind of like a troop watch? I forget the name, but didn't HO used to have a enlisted help program?

I personally believe that this person or her husband do not deserve the title of "Mom" or "Dad, the story heading would be more appropriately titled-
Neglectful parent receives 25 year sentence etc.

25 years for the biotch is never going to be enough, if there was execution she should get it and die same for the idiot sperm donor...

The poor baby! Our children (especially that small) can be such helpless victims. I feel for the older child, knowing that her own mother was guilty of the death of her younger sister.

This is BS!!!!!!!!!! She deserves to DIE!!!!!!! Take her out to the desert and leave her with no food or water and let her feel some pain. Give her a week and put a round through her head.

Ahh....but who cares if you never get to "see her grow up" or that you'll "live with that for eternity." That's the point. You should suffer for what has been done.

The point of this is severe and willful child neglect. If no computer games were present, other means of self-entertainment would have been pursued so she could have neglected that child.

Yep. It was your duty and you failed.

They should cover her walls with pictures of her daughter. Then find every video tape or anything that has the sound of her daughter on it and play it 24/7 continuously for the rest of her life! The punishment should fit the crime. There's no excuse for what she did. That child suffered and no so should she.

This child was in a concentration camp that she couldn't escape. Her parents were her captors. In this prison, I'm sure she suffered even greater neglect than just starvation and dehydration. The neglect usually starts more subtley and builds up to out right abuse. This innocent little child knew nothing but pain from birth.

The father is no more innocent than the mother. He watched it, was a party to it and obviously didn't care. They both are human dung. Let's execute them and fertilze the earth with them. At least they will be useful for something.
