Mother Sentenced To 16 Years In Prison For Causing Daughter’s Death

A Milwaukee mother will spend 16 years in prison for causing her two-year-old daughter’s death last September.  Forty-one-year-old Lisa Simmons pleaded guilty in April to charges of physical abuse of a child, recklessly causing great bodily harm and neglect of a child causing death.  When emergency responders came to her home last fall they found the child had severe burns on her back.  Simmons reportedly changed her story about how it happened at least twice.
