HARRISBURG – PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced that a Lancaster County woman charged with the death of a 2-year-old girl in her custody has been sentenced to 15-30 years in state prison. In May 2017, police responded to Angela Diaz’s West Lampeter Township home and found the 2 year-old girl unresponsive. The toddler had been in Diaz’s custody for approximately 4 months while her biological parents resided in Georgia. The child was taken to Hershey Medical where an examination of the body revealed that the toddler had suffered malnutrition and brain trauma from a severe impact while in Diaz’s custody and care. Diaz pleaded guilty to third degree murder in September 2020.
