The victim’s family hoped Villarreal would face the maximum 20-year sentence, the outlet reported. Villarreal began serving her 120-day sentence Friday.
“They destroyed us for a second time,” Maria Molina, the victim’s daughter, said. “The first time when she killed my father, and now by not giving her the punishment she deserves. It’s painful knowing she will have freedom.”
