Woman gets 6 months in sister's beating death

Kimberly Craig, 33, of 318 Belmont Ave. was sentenced Friday to four years of community control, including six months in the Correctional Treatment Facility for the death last year of her sister, Yolanda, 36.

Craig pleaded no contest March 31 in Lucas County Common Pleas Court to attempted involuntary manslaughter.

Assistant County Prosecutor Jeff Lingo said the sisters had been drinking when a fight broke out between them last October over fast food that got cold. During the fight, Craig punched her sister twice in the face, he said.

Over the next few days, the victim complained of having an increasingly bad headache, Mr. Lingo said.

On Oct. 24, she began having seizures and died in the hospital a few days later.
