Sentencing hearing for Alberta mother in abused twins case begins

The mother who abused, starved and neglected her infant twin girls until one died and another barely recovered should serve 25 years in prison, a prosecutor argued Monday.

A sentencing hearing for the 37-year-old woman — who cannot be named under a publication ban protecting the identity of the children — began Monday and is expected to continue all week.

She earlier pleaded guilty to manslaughter, aggravated assault and failing to provide the necessaries of life.

According to an agreed statement of facts, the woman admits she and her husband — who was handed a 15-year prison sentence June 11 after earlier pleading guilty to the same charges — were solely responsible for the abuse and neglect of the two young girls, the endangerment of the surviving twin and the death of her sister.

She also admitted she caused the traumatic brain injury to the girl known as Baby M which, along with the systematic deprivation of food and nourishment and failure to seek medical attention, which lead to her death.

“She subjected both twins to significant inflicted head trauma and yet failed to seek medical attention, knowing the significant force she used to cause their injuries.”
