|Schaumburg woman to ask Rauner to void her sentence in death of disabled daughter|
|By chicagotribune.com- Robert McCoppin|
A woman ordered to spend four years in prison for the death of her disabled daughter in Schaumburg will ask Gov. Bruce Rauner to void her sentence, her attorney said.
Bonnie Liltz, convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving a fatal overdose of medication to her daughter Courtney in 2015, will seek commutation now that the Illinois Supreme Court has denied her request to appeal her sentence, attorney Thomas Glasgow said.
The denial last week means Liltz, who is in poor health, has until Nov. 1 to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, or the case will revert to the appellate court, which upheld the sentence, Glasgow said. The court could revoke her bond, on which she has been free while her case was appealed.
