Baby-sitter Sentencing Draws Crowd

Twitter: Mike Perry/KHQ tweets: "A very crowded courtroom for the sentencing of Amanda Skogen, babysitter who fatally killed 3yr old Cohen Johnson." (If you followed Mike on Twitter, you could see a photo of the crowd.) Also: here's Meghann Cuniff's Sirens & Gavels post re: Skogen pleading guilty to manslaughter.

  • 10:43 a.m. (from Mike): Very emotional testimony from Cohen's parents as they scroll through pictures of him in court.

You be the judge: What sentence does Amanda Skogen deserve?
