A mother-of-two from Texas in the United States could spend the rest of her life behind bars after it’s alleged she abused and neglected her children in an effort to make them appear ill.
According to KWTX News, 28-year-old Katelyn Christina Carnline told friends and family her four-month-old daughter was suffering from a rare genetic condition, called Inborn Errors Metabolism, which delays a child’s development and prevents the body from properly turning food into energy.
