Kentucky woman sentenced to 70 years in child abuse case

A judge has sentenced a Madison County woman to 70 years in prison in a child abuse case.
Local news organizations report that 36-year-old Linda Richmond was sentenced Thursday after she was found guilty on multiple counts of criminal abuse against her 9-year-old daughter.
Richmond and her husband, 39-year-old Julio Valladares, were arrested in 2014 after police say they withheld food from the child. According to an indictment, the couple also forced the girl to stand in a cold shower and sprayed rubbing alcohol on wounds they had caused.
A jury recommended Richmond serve 90 years, but the judge said the maximum sentence for criminal abuse was 70 years.
In May, Valladares was sentenced to 20 years in connection with the case.
