(KSL News) The Springville mother convicted of child-abuse homicide wants to stay home with her other children as part of her sentence.
A jury found Jennete Killpack guilty, last week, of tying her daughter's hands behind her back and forcing her to drink about a gallon of water, as punishment for taking her sibling's drink.
Killpack called it water theraphy. Doctors say it killed the little girl.
Now Killpack's attorney is asking a judge to allow Killpack to stay home with her four other kids while her husband is at work, and serve prison time on nights and weekends. He argues Killpack did not mean to hurt her daugther.
Killpack will be sentenced in December.
