MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A 33-year-old woman who witnesses say stood motionless while her young daughter was struck and killed on a Madison street has been sentenced to more than two years in prison.

Raya Hansen told a Dane County judge Monday that she takes full responsibility for the death of her 1-year-old daughter, Lily.

The Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/1ETZoBS ) reports Hansen said she wanted to apologize “to everyone who had to go through this.”

Hansen pleaded guilty last week to child neglect. She will be on 10 years of extended supervision.

The complaint says Hansen was high on drugs when she put her daughter in a wheelchair and headed to a drug store about 3:30 a.m. on Feb. 14, 2013.

The wheelchair rolled out into the street and was struck by a van.
