A Waukegan woman who admitted to murdering her 6-year-old daughter has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Nelly Vazquez-Salazar, 28, stabbed her daughter Evelyn Vazquez 11 times in 2008.

Vazquez-Salazar pleaded guilty in December in exchange for a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.

Police said she believed her daughter was possessed because she had been sleepwalking and speaking a different language.
