BELFAST – A Stockton Springs mother convicted of beating her 10-year-old daughter to death in February of 2018 has been sentenced to 48 years in prison.
Sharon Kennedy, formerly known as Sharon Carrillo, was found guilty of killing her oldest daughter, Marissa Kennedy, who died of battered child syndrome, after an eight-day trial at the Waldo Judicial Center in December of last year.
Her former husband, Julio Carrillo, admitted he killed the elementary school student on Feb 25, 2018, and is now serving a 55-year prison sentence.
Though Kennedy had confessed to the crime, her lawyers said she gave a “fake confession” because she has a low IQ, was the victim of domestic violence and was coerced into doing so.
Kennedy had more than 40 blunt force trauma injuries to her 76-pound body when examined by the medical examiner
