Door plastic on car door is ‘too big for a child’

A mother in Florida has been sentenced to five years in prison for leaving a child with a plastic door knob that was too big for her daughter.

The incident happened in 2015 and was caught on camera by a neighbor.

The mother’s husband told police the child was about 1-year-old at the time.

The woman had a concealed handgun license, which she used to get the child out of the house.

Her husband and son were charged with child abuse.

Police said the girl was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The case was eventually dropped.
