TOOELE A woman convicted of killing her 14-month-old adopted daughter will undergo a mental evaluation before being sentenced.
Court records said a judge delayed sentencing for Kimberly Emelyantsev, 34, during a hearing in 3rd District Court on Aug. 8, while she underwent the evaluation at the Utah State Prison. Emelyantsev pleaded guilty in June to a charge of child abuse homicide, a second-degree felony, in the death of her adopted child in March.
Emelyantsev will be sentenced on Oct. 10. A child abuse charge against Emelyantsev's husband, Fyodor, was dismissed in June.
