Woman sentenced in 'heart-wrenching' child abuse case
ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) —
The wife of a convicted child abuser is now heading to prison.
Rachel Linton will serve five years in state prison for her role in the abuse of three children.
The State Attorney said Linton's husband, Jeffrey Linton, twisted a 4-year-old's arm until it broke and denied food and medical care to several children.
Jeffery is currently serving 35 years in state prison.
Nine children were removed from the home when the couple was initally arrested.
At the time, Sheriff David Morgan said it was one of the worst child abuse cases he'd ever seen.
