This popped up for today - I have to look at this court site every.day.
So it looks like she pled guilty on the hearing on 8/23. I'm going to "guess" and say this is her sentencing date?

9/9/19 9:00 am 2018-CR-001209-FE Woolheater Elizabeth Criminal Jury Trial
guilty plea to amended information on 8-23-19
Hearing result for Criminal Jury Trial held on 09/09/2019 09:00 AM: Plea prior to trial.

Man convicted in death of Wichita toddler

[....]

Under that agreement, Diel pleaded guilty to second degree murder and is expected to serve 584 months (nearly 49 years) in prison when he is sentenced on June 25.

These "agreements" are just tools used to avoid the death penalty or LWOP...
49 years in jail for somebody who killed a 2 y.o. kid are not enough

Ugh of course she only got less than 20 years. Mom's always get less time then their boyfriends or husbands even though it was their child and they are the one responsible for their child's safety.

Almost 20 years? Ridiculous sentence.
Idiotic judges are on the rise in this country.
Due to "rehabilitation" and other stupid things our laws allow she will be out of prison in 10/15 years. Maybe less.
