The 35 year prison term for 48 year old Kimbery Kubina was upheld today by the Indiana Court of Appeals. Kubina was the step-mother of Christian Choate, the 13 year old boy whose body was discovered buried in a shallow grave at a Gary mobile home park in 2011. The Times reports Kubina claimed the judge improperly assessed her position of trust and did not account for her suffering as a victim of spousal abuse, ignored her mental illness and remorse. According to the article, the 48 year old witnessed the violent attacks on the boy but never told authorities. She also assisted the boy's father, Riley Choate, who is currently serving an 80 year prison sentence, in burying the body.
