AFRICANGLOBE - A Washington couple accused of starving, beating and forcing their adopted Ethiopian daughter outside as punishment were sentenced Tuesday to decades in prison for her death. Larry and Carri Williams were convicted Sept. 9 of manslaughter in the death of a teenage girl they adopted from Ethiopia. Carri Williams was also found guilty of homicide by abuse.
The "devout Christians" admittedly did not spare the rod with their adopted children, but prosecutors say they went to terrible extremes, hitting Hana and her younger brother with plastic plumbing pipes, hosing them down with cold water and forcing Hana to sleep in a barn or a four-foot-by-two-foot closet for weeks at a time.
