Md. woman to be sentenced for killing daughters

By Washington Post Editors

A Maryland woman accused of killing two of her adopted daughters and keeping their bodies in a freezer for months is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Calvert County for the abuse of a third girl.

Forty-four-year-old Renee Bowman pleaded guilty in September to first-degree child abuse. She has a separate trial scheduled for February in Montgomery County on murder charges.

Bowman's youngest adopted daughter was found wandering around her Lusby neighborhood in a bloodstained nightshirt after jumping from a window in September 2008. Authorities searched the home and found the frozen remains. Investigators concluded the two older girls had been killed in Montgomery County, where the family lived until the fall of 2007.
