FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The mother of a 2-year-old girl whose death became emblematic of the lack of justice on tribal lands has pleaded guilty to a homicide charge in Navajo Nation court.
Norena Joe was sentenced this week to a year in jail, which was suspended, and two years of probation. The acknowledgement that she was criminally negligent came seven years after the death of her daughter, Kiara Harvey.
