A Washington state couple were convicted of manslaughter Monday in the gruesome starvation and hypothermia death of a teenage girl they adopted from Ethiopia. A jury found Larry Williams, of Sedro-Woolley, guilty of first-degree manslaughter, while his wife, Carri Williams, was found guilty of homicide by abuse as well as manslaughter. The jury also convicted them both of assault and each faces a possible life sentence.

 

Hana Williams died in May 2011 in the backyard of the couple's home, where she was forced to stay as part of a strict system of child-rearing outlined in a Christian parenting book. 5050 5050 Manslaughter: Larry (left) and Carri Williams react in a Washington court Monday as a jury read their guilty verdict.

Hana Williams, seen in this undated photo looking healthy, was found frozen and starved to death in the yard of her adoptive parents' home in 2011 An autopsy showed that Hana died of hypothermia that was aggravated by chronic gastritis and malnutrition. Her bone-thin body was covered in bruises, including a lump on her shaved head, and red bloody markings on her hips, elbows and face. Defense lawyers argued that questionable parenting practices don't necessarily amount to a crime. Hana is believed to have been 13, but no documentation of her birth in Ethiopia was available. The trial was postponed several times and her body was exhumed in January. The jury began deliberating last week. On Monday, they announced their decision to convict both the Williams' of first degree manslaughter.

Maybe I need to rephrase the question. Because I genuinely want to know. I do understand that each state and Washington DC implemented their own set of Black Codes and later Jim Crow Laws, I'm simply asking in what state were the particular Black Codes, Statue 662, Section A-1 so that I can become educated on the law and perhaps educate others on the laws. Thanks for your assistance on this.

I'm sorry Yemaya, but I thought you knew that I made up the "Statue 662" part.  But the "Black Codes" or jim crow laws are all over the south and there were even "Black Codes" in the North as well.  I'll have find some credible information to post.
