WINFIELD, W.Va. -- A Putnam County woman has been charged with failing to get the proper treatment for her 3-year-old daughter, a cystic fibrosis patient who died last month.
Tracy Wright, 28, of Hurricane, was charged Thursday with child neglect resulting in death, WSAZ-TV reported.
A criminal complaint in Putnam County Magistrate Court alleges Wright refused to get help for the girl, who died on Dec. 29.
In a hearing Thursday, Putnam Circuit Judge Philip Stowers sentenced Jessie J. Cossin, 21, for the February 2009 slaying.
Cossin pleaded guilty last month to shooting Angela Dawn Casto and Nick Hanshaw at their home in Red House. The three were good friends, according to previous reports, but Hanshaw had asked Casto to spend less time with Cossin.
"I ended up shooting one of my best friends," Cossin said at his plea hearing last month.
