CHINLE, AZ – The 23-year-old woman who killed her 17-month-old daughter by stranding her in the desert will spend the next 20 years in prison.

Last September, Ashley Attson placed her daughter in a stroller, then pushed her into the desert on the Navajo Reservation. Attson left the poor girl there for four days and nights.

During those days  and nights that her daughter died alone in an absolutely horrendous fashion, Attson stayed busy.

“Over the next few days, she met friends for ice cream and posted pictures of herself on Facebook,” according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona. “When she returned, the child was dead.”

Two days after finding her daughter dead, Attson returned and buried the girl’s body in an animal hole.

What’s worse is that Attson only gained custody of the girl two months before she killed her. Her daughter had been in the care of tribal social services for most of her life after being born with meth in her system.

While handing her a 20 year prison sentence, Judge Campbell called the girl’s death an “intentional, cold-hearted, horrendous killing of an innocent child.”…
