Mother screams at judge after he sentences her to two years for killing her daughter:
Tierra Williams, 23, had left daughter, Wynter Parker, with the girl’s father when she went out February 2, 2018.
But when she returned home two hours later to the Akron home, she found the little girl ‘frozen’ on the porch on what had been a freezing cold day, authorities claimed.
However Tierra reacted angrily when Summit County Judge Alison McCarty sentenced her to 18 months in jail, Akron Beacon Journal reported.
‘That is so f****d up,’ Tierra Williams, 23, shouted as a Summit County sheriff’s deputy put handcuffs on her wrists.
‘I’m so f*****g mad,’ she screamed.
Tierra and her ex-boyfriend, Dariaun Parker, 25, pleaded guilty to child endangering in November for Wynter Parker’s death.
Parker, who received two years in jail, pleaded guilty last November to child endangering, which carries a penalty of up to three years in prison. Both were hoping for probation, while prosecutors urged prison time.
Judge McCarty told told both that she will consider releasing them early.
Williams found her daughter, Wynter Parker, unconscious outside the family’s Willow Run apartment and made a frantic call to 911.
‘She’s frozen! She’s frozen,’ Williams told the dispatcher.
Williams, who was pregnant at the time, told police that she left Wynter with Dariaun Parker for about two hours while she was out with their 4-year-old son.
Parker lost track of Wynter on a day when Akron’s temperatures never rose higher than 19 degrees.
Despite being rushed to a nearby hospital, Wynter, who hadn’t been wearing warm clothing or a coat, died from severe hypothermia.
The parents broke up after Wynter’s death, though they have been splitting custody of their two other children under the supervision of Summit County Children Services.
Angela Williams, Tierra’s mother, begged McCarty to give her daughter probation. She said her daughter is a good mother who made ‘one bad decision’ and has suffered enough.
‘We need to heal as a family and not be pulled apart with her being gone from her kids and her family,’ Angela Williams said.
After sentencing Parker said he wanted ‘to take full responsibility for what happened’ to his daughter.
‘I can’t tell you how sorry I am about what happened, it was a tragic accident, Akron Beacon Journal reported.
