Fry to Serve 20 Years For Killing 8-Year-Old Daughter

Convicted murderer Kimberly Fry was sentenced to 20 years in prison today.

Kimberly Fry, convicted of strangling her 8-year-old daughter, was finally sentenced Tuesday at a hearing in Providence Superior Court.

According to WPRI, Superior Court Judge William E. Carnes Jr. sentenced Fry to 40 years with 20 years to serve. On Oct. 6, 2011, Fry was – a charge with a maximum sentence of life in prison – in the death her 8-year-old daughter Camden in August 2008. Fry, 38, strangled her daughter in their home on Ricci Lane in North Kingstown after the girl threw a tantrum over taking a bath. Fry's first attorneys asserted that while trying to perform a restraint technique on the girl.

According to reports from the Providence Journal, Fry's attorney Judith Crowell urged the court to order Fry to serve 10 years at the Adult Correctional Institutions while the prosecution pushed for a life sentence. 

Fry addressed the court, saying she would "forever hurt, for this is my fault." Speaking over her daughter, Fry also said, "All I wanted to do is give her a perfect life."

The road to Fry's sentencing has been laden with postponements. Her original sentencing date was set for Feb. 17, but was delayed after multiple changes to her legal representation and an outburst in Providence Superior Court where she declared, "I am not a murderess."

You kill your 8 year old kid and all you get is 20 years in prison??? Knowing this state she'll be out in 12-15. What a shame.
