According to the New York Post, 66-year-old Veronica Green Posey killed her 9-year-old cousin by sitting on her as a form of punishment. Prosecutors say the girl, Dericka Lindsay had suffered horrific beatings from Posey, and her adoptive parents, James and Grace Smith. Officials say Posey sat on Dericka for more than five minutes in October 2017, causing the girl to suffocate.

Posey’s attorney said the 320-pound woman was just trying to help the Smiths discipline their kid and didn’t mean to hurt Dericka. While the mistake is very unfortunate, Posey’s form of punishment will now be spending the remainder of her life in prison .

The Post also reported that James Smith was previously sentenced to 10 years for his role in Dericka’s death. However, Grace Smith still faces charges but is currently mentally and physically unfit to stand trial.
