Woman gets 14 years for child abuse; Foster daughter; She stabbed girl's eyes with needles, seared hand on stove.
KENT -- A woman who punished her foster daughter by plunging hypodermic needles hypodermic needle into the girl's eyes and beating her with various objects was sentenced Friday to 14 years in prison. Prosecutors asked for and received a high-end sentence for Chornice Kabbelliyaa, who pleaded guilty in September to one count of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault.
The foster girl's brother and another child that had been placed with Kabbelliyaa told investigators that they too were mistreated before being placed in other homes.
Kabbelliyaa's biological children did not show signs of abuse, investigators said.
CPS officials admitted after the arrest that the girl's case had been mismanaged and that caseworkers overlooked some red flags because they were pleased she had been placed in a relative's home.

Chornice Kabbelliyaa is not in the DOC system, however there is an Order of Commitment, Further dated 03/01/2007, so I assume she is in a mental hospital.
