Bentonville - A Siloam Springs woman was sentenced to five years in prison after admitting she knew her husband had sexually abused a girl for 11 years, but the woman didn't take any action to stop the abuse.
Carol Sue Lykins, 49, pleaded guilty Thursday to permitting the abuse of a minor, a class B felony. Her plea came under an agreement that attorney Herb Southern reached with Deputy Prosecutor Mike Armstrong.
Lykins' husband - Jefferey Ray Lykins - was sentenced in October 2007 to 30 years in prison after admitting to raping a mentally disabled girl.
