A Niagara Falls couple was sentenced to up to nine years in prison on Thursday in the death of their 22-month-old daughter.

Randy and Nicole Colucci were sentenced by Niagara County Judge Sara Sperrazza after they pleaded to second-degree manslaughter. Their daughter Carmen died after her neck became trapped between the top rail of a playpen and mattress that had been weighed down by a television set.

District Attorney Holly Sloma went to visit the toddler just before she died on April 8, 2010, and sobbed on Thursday when explaining that she told Carmen she'd "make this right."
