A mother got a maximum five-to-15-year prison sentence Friday for starving her 5-year-old child to death.
Displaying photographs on a blackboard of Tonya Daniels' emaciated body, the judge excoriated Gloria Gross, 39, for subjecting "your own helpless daughter . . . to a long and agonizing death."Tonya weighed 23 pounds and had virtually no muscle over her bones when she was found dead in her home last summer. She lost nearly a third of her body weight in the last two months of her life.
