Nixzaliz Santiago, who was convicted of manslaughter in her 7-year-old daughter's death, was sentenced to "the maximum consecutive sentence"--40 1/2 to 43 years-- in prison. The death of Nixzmary Brown shocked the city--the girl was found unconscious after her stepfather threw her head into a bathtub faucet (he claimed she had been misbehaving). She severely malnourished, the victim of severe child abuse, and it turned out that the Administration for Children's Services had been contacted numerous times about the family. Stepfather Cesar Rodriguez was convicted of manslaughter earlier this year and is serving a 29-year prison sentence.
