The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1lYbNH9 ) reports 49-year-old Lillie Stanton of Winchester avoided the death penalty by pleading guilty Thursday in Clark County Circuit Court.

She faces a recommended sentence of life in prison without parole when she is sentenced Feb. 20.

Stanton was indicted last year in the deaths of 23-year-old Danel Korrey Stanton and 22-month-old Kaydence Ray Miers.

Court records show Lillie Stanton told police she slashed the victims' throats because she feared that Kaydence's father was about to be given more visitation time. Police said she also said she cut her own throat and wrists after the May 20 killings.
