35 years for grandma who threw girl off walkway

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — A Virginia grandmother has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for murdering her 2-year-old granddaughter by tossing her off a sixth-level walkway at a busy shopping mall.

Fifty-one-year-old Carmela dela Rosa was convicted of killing young Angelyn Ogdoc in November 2010 at Tysons Corner Center. Dela Rosa’s lawyer argued unsuccessfully that her client was legally insane.

In a videotaped confession, dela Rosa told police she killed Angelyn to get back at her son-in-law for getting her daughter pregnant out of wedlock.

Dela Rosa apologized at a hearing Friday in Fairfax County court.

A jury recommended the 35-year sentence. At Friday’s hearing, Judge Bruce White had the option of reducing the sentence but left it, calling her actions “almost beyond comprehension.”

Take grandmother to the walkway and throw her over. If she lives, let her go. If not, problem solved.
