A Virginia woman was sentenced Friday to 35 years for throwing her 2-year-old granddaughter off a sixth-level walkway at a busy shopping mall, a murder the judge called "almost beyond comprehension."
A woman whose 2-year-old daughter was thrown to her death from a mall's sixth-floor pedestrian bridge sobbed through angry, agonized testimony Wednesday at the trial of her mother, who's charged with murdering the girl.
In a videotaped confession, dela Rosa told police she killed Angelyn to get back at her son-in-law for getting her daughter pregnant out of wedlock and ruining her daughter's opportunities for a better life.
Mrs. Ogdoc's testimony came a day after the jury heard a videotaped confession from Mrs. dela Rosa to detectives in which she said she tossed Angelyn off the bridge primarily to exact revenge on her son-in-law, whom she blamed for breaking up her own family.
