A Perry County step mom was sentenced to 13 years in prison today in connection with the death of a child. Donna Conley was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and child endangering charges in the death of four-year-old Brandi Marie Conley in December of 1996. During the trial, Conley claimed that she found the injured child on the landing at the foot of a flight of stairs, in the family’s home in Saltillo, in Perry County. An examination concluded that the child had been beaten and died of brain injuries caused by a blunt trauma to the head. Despite the findings, family and friends believe in Conley's innocence and say they will appeal the court's decision.
