BELFAST, Maine - Bad weather has delayed the sentencing of a woman convicted of murdering her 10-year-old daughter in a high-profile case that prompted changes to Maine's child protection system.
The sentencing of Sharon Carrillo was postponed Friday because courts, like all state offices, were closed because of snow and ice. No new sentencing date was set.
Carrillo was convicted in the death of Marissa Kennedy, whose bruised and battered body was found at the family's home in Stockton Springs in 2018. An autopsy concluded that she had a brain bleed and a lacerated liver, along with multiple older injuries.
Carrillo's estranged husband, Julio Carrillo, pleaded guilty and is serving a 55-year sentence.
