The Omaha woman who failed to provide food, warmth or clothing to a freezing 4-year-old girl, leading to the girl’s death, was sentenced Wednesday to 20 to 25 years in prison.
Immediately before she was sentenced, 22-year-old Chelsey Cook quoted Bible verses to the judge and claimed that she was being crucified.
“I’m a good person. I’m a really good mom,” she said. “This whole situation is very irritating, but even though this is a bad situation, I learned a lot.
“I just hope you guys don’t end up in my shoes, for you all to see that this is wrong. This is very wrong. You all should be ashamed of yourselves.”
Prosecutor Molly Keane fired back, saying that Cook’s statements were difficult to listen to in the context of what occurred — that little Alicia Morrow lost her life because of Cook’s unwillingness to offer aid, which led to the girl’s death in January.
