The jury has recommended a sentence of life without the possibility of parole in the case against an Oklahoma City woman accused of killing her daughter with a crucifix

Juanita Gomez, 50, was found guilty of killing her daughter in August 2016. Geneva Gomez, 33, was found badly beaten and unrecognizable on the floor of the home she shared with her mother.
