Woman sentenced in twin daughters abuse case


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Rochester woman accused of abusing her twin infant daughters has been sentenced.

A judge sentenced 22-year-old Kanishka Molina to seven years in prison Monday.

Investigators say Molina brought one of the 4 month old twins to the emergency room because she wasn't feeling well in May 2011.

Doctors found the baby had multiple fractures that they say didn't appear to be accidental. Investigators also found the other baby had fractures and injuries.

Molina then told investigators she often gets angry and frustrated because she has to care for the babies by herself and admitted she may have handled them roughly at times.
