CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – The sentencing for a 20-year-old Cedar Rapids woman charged in the death of her 2-year-old daughter in 2008 was continued Tuesday in Linn County District Court to October 21.
Brianna Volesky pleaded guilty in January to child neglect and involuntary manslaughter in the death of her daughter Skylar Inman. Skylar died of blunt force injuries to her abdomen.
She faces up to 15 years in prison.
Volesky's former boyfriend, Lee Muldoon, 25, of Coggon, pleaded guilty last month to involuntary manslaughter and neglect of a child before his trial was concluded. He had faced a first-degree murder charge.
