Couple sentenced to years in prison for daughter’s death
SEDRO- WOOLLEY –A Skagit County couple were sentenced to decades in prison Tuesday for their roles in the death of their adopted daughter.
Larry and Carri Williams were convicted of first-degree manslaughter and first-degree assault for the death of 15 year-old Hana Williams and the beating of her young brother. Carri was also convicted of homicide by abuse.
Carrie was sentenced to 36 years in prison. Her husband was sentenced to nearly 28 years in prison. Larry plans to appeal his conviction, saying it was his wife who was the primary abuser, and he knew little while at work.
Hana died outside the Williams’ Sedro-Woolley home after she was left in the cold without food as punishment, and often starved and neglected in her time in the Williams’ home.
The couple adopted Hana from Ethopia.
