To answer your questions, the sentencing range for 2nd degree murder in Virginia is 5-40 years, and for Felony Child Neglect it is 1-10, depending on the specific code section charge.

In my experience these can be very complicated and difficult cases to defend, so do take your time and make a wise decision about which lawyer to hire to represent your father.
