EL RENO — A Canadian County jury has recommended Sonja Kluth spend the rest of her life in prison after she was convicted of child abuse, a court official said Tuesday.
John and Sonja Kluth, of Yukon, both were found guilty of child abuse and child neglect in connection with their three adopted children about 9:45 p.m. Monday.
Trial testimony showed the Kluths forced the children to eat pet food and kept them in dog crates.
The jury recommended John Kluth be sentenced to 10 years on each of the five counts and Sonja Kluth, in addition to a life sentence, receive 25 years for each count child neglect.
Sentencing is set for July 24.
