Wash. Pair To Be Sentenced In Adopted Girl's Death

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) - A Washington state couple convicted of manslaughter in the death of a teenage girl they adopted from Ethiopia is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday.
    
Larry and Carri Williams of Sedro-Woolley were convicted Sept. 9 in the 2011 death of Hana in the backyard of their home. The teen died of hypothermia, and the autopsy also noted malnutrition.
    
The Skagit Valley Herald reports prosecutors are recommending a sentence of 27 to 37 years for Carri Williams, who also was convicted of homicide by abuse. They are recommending a sentence of 14 to 18 years for Larry Williams, who wasn't home at the time of the death.
    
Both also were convicted of assault of a child for punishing a boy they adopted in 2008 from Ethiopia at the same time as Hana.
    
Larry and Carri Williams are to be sentenced in Mount Vernon.
