This is rediculous. She should have been sentenced to a lot more than 25 years just for neglecting her child. I dont understand why some people have children and lose all intent to take care of them. This woman had no right to have children. As far as her husband goes, he should get just as much time. It was not only the mothers responsibilty to care for this child it was his also. Children are a blessing from God, and throwing them away like that is not right and should not be tolerated!!

This is when a community really needs to come together to advocate for the more vulnerable ones. I can assure you that maybe the next door neighbors knew about this neglect or the fact that this couple played WOW for a extended amount of time. We talk too much but help very little, please report abuse; we are the only voice for these children.

I was an EMT that responded to the house and this poor childs death has haunted me ever since. I was able to testify in court and help get her mother convicted! It was federal court so she will do 85% of her time min.
