Woman sentenced to 10 years for killing mom

FINDLAY - An Arcadia, Ohio, woman who killed her elderly mother and assaulted her long-time partner was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison.

Linda C. Brown, 40, was sentenced by Hancock County Common Pleas Judge Reginald Routson after she pleaded guilty in July to an amended charge of involuntary manslaughter for the June 28, 2007, death of her mother, Winifred Brown, 75.

She also pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated murder for attacking Jill Darnell, who was 49 at the time, in the home the three women shared. In pleading guilty, Brown admitted she had failed to address her mental problems.

County Prosecutor Mark Miller had recommended a sentence of 10 to 20 years for Brown with the concurrence of Ms. Darnell and the elder Mrs. Brown's other daughter.
