Punishment phase set for West Texas mom in death

Posted: Updated:

The punishment phase is set to begin in the trial of a West Texas woman convicted in the starvation death of her 22-month-old daughter.

The punishment phase is expected to start Thursday morning in the trial of 23-year-old Tiffany Klapheke (kla-PEEK'). She faces up to life in prison after being found guilty Wednesday of injury to a child in the 2012 death of Tamryn Klapheke.

The Abilene Reporter-News reports that Tiffany Klapheke cried as the verdict was read.

According to prosecutors, Klapheke had kept Tamryn locked in a room for four days before she found her dead in her crib and called 911.

Klapheke, who didn't testify, has said her Air Force husband's deployment overseas left her too stressed to care for the couple's three girls.
