Man, woman sentenced to 5½ to 15 years in girl’s death

February 27, 2019

SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) — A man and woman have been sentenced to 5½- to 15-year terms in the death of their 10-month-old daughter in western Pennsylvania.

Thirty-two-year-old Michael Wingard and 29-year-old Angalina Miller pleaded guilty in December to involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault.

Somerset borough police said Arianna Miller was taken to Somerset Hospital in April 2017 and died five days later at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

Somerset County District Attorney Lisa Lazzari-Strasiser said Tuesday she believes Wingard was responsible, but Miller was equally culpable in not immediately seeking medical treatment for the girl.

Wingard apologized in court to the family “for all the suffering they’ve been through.” An attorney for Miller said “She’s never going to get past the death of her daughter, but this will bring her some closure.”
