LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas mother has been sentenced to life
in prison for stabbing her 7-year-old daughter to death and slashing her 8-year-old son in February 2003.
A lawyer for 47-year-old Sherri Love told the court Thursday that "something went terribly wrong" while Love was on medication.
Love was convicted in June of killing Arabella Moreno and wounding Brian Moreno. The jury also found Love guilty of child abuse or neglect.
Love has said she does not remember the killing. She will become eligible for parole in 56 years.
