GRANDMOTHER SENTENCED
Grandmother sentenced to life without parole in deaths of daughter, granddaughter

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, February 20, 2014 3:05 PM EST
WINCHESTER, Ky.


A central Kentucky woman who pleaded guilty to murdering her daughter and toddler granddaughter has been sentenced to life without parole.

Clark County Circuit Judge William Clouse sentenced 49-year-old Lillie Stanton of Winchester on Thursday. The Lexington Herald-Leader said Stanton made no comment during the sentencing, which took less than 30 seconds, and declined a request by the newspaper for an interview.

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.
