The final two defendants convicted in a fraud scheme in the death of Danieal Kelly were sentenced to substantial prison terms yesterday.
U.S. District Judge Stewart Dalzell sentenced Julius Murray, of Upper Darby, to 11 years in prison and ordered him to pay restitution of $316,000. Dalzell sentenced Mariam Coulibaly, of Brookhaven, to 11 1/4 years in prison with restitution set at $1,044.
Five other former MultiEthnic Behavioral Health Services Inc. employees also got jail time in the case stemming from the death of Kelly, 14.
Kelly, who had cerebral palsy, died in August 2006. She suffered bedsores and malnutrition because of inadequate care that MultiEthnic was supposed to prevent.
Mickal Kamuvaka, administrator and co-founder of the agency who was sentenced Thursday to 17 1/2 years in prison, allowed employees to falsify documents that said the agency had visited Kelly's home.
Murray was one of the MultiEthnic caseworkers who ignored Kelly's condition. He has been in custody since his arrest on illegal immigration charges last year.
Coulibaly was convicted of falsifying documents that had the city believing visits were being made to the homes of at-risk children. She was immediately taken into custody.
The scheme lasted 6 1/2 years and cost the city $3.6 million. MultiEthnic originally assured the city that the money would go to the 500 families who needed the extra support, according to the case's sentencing memo.
Kelly's mother, Andrea, was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in state prison after pleading guilty last year to third-degree murder and child endangerment.
Another manager at MultiEthnic, Solomon Manamela, was sentenced Thursday to 17 years in jail.
The restitution from eight of the nine defendants will be paid to the federal Crime Victims Fund.
