A central Kentucky woman who pleaded guilty to murdering her daughter and toddler granddaughter has been sentenced to life without parole.
Stanton lived with her daughter, 23-year-old Danel Korrey Stanton, and granddaughter, 22-month-old Kaydence Ray Miers. Court records indicate Lillie Stanton told police she slashed the victims' throats because she feared that Kaydence's father was about to gain more visitation time. Police said she also said she cut her own throat and wrists after the May 20, 2012, killings.
