INDIO, Calif. (AP) — An Indiana woman awaiting sentencing in the 2001 death of her 2-month-old daughter faces 15 years to life in prison in the case.

Krissy Lynn Werntz goes before a Riverside County judge Friday after being convicted of second-degree murder in the death of her daughter, Montana, in April.

Werntz's partner, Jason Michael Hann, was sentenced to death earlier this year in Montana's death.

Her body was found in an Arkansas storage unit in 2002.

Authorities determined she had died in Desert Hot Springs in 2001.

Police also found the remains of a 2-month-old baby boy in another storage unit in Arizona, where they had been hidden in 2000.

The 34-year-old Werntz was not charged in the boy's death but Hann was convicted of second-degree murder in that case.
