A couple in Wales have been jailed for the manslaughter of their 16-year-old disabled daughter. A jury in Swansea, Wales, sentenced the dead girl’s father to seven-and-a-half years in prison and her mother to six years in prison in the case on Wednesday.

Officials say that when the police and other concerned authorities reached Kaylia’s house, they were ‘shocked’ by the smell of rotting flesh. Kaylia was found dead with multiple wounds on her body surrounded by trash, urine bottles and dirty toilet pads used for dog training.
