ISIS bride convicted in German court for 'crimes against humanity'

The wife of an ISIS fighter was convicted in a German court Monday for "crimes against humanity and attempted war crimes" which resulted in the murder of a 5-year-old Yazidi girl.

According to the Washington Post, the 30-year-old German citizen, Jennifer Wenisch, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for not trying to prevent the young girl from dying of thirst after her husband brutally chained the child and left her to die in an Iraqi desert. 

In 2014, Wenisch traveled to Syria in an effort to join ISIS, which later resulted in her marriage to one of the group's fighters.

According to The Hill, Wenisch and her husband purchased the child and her mother in 2015 so they could serve as their household slaves.
