I am worried such "lenient" sentence would encourage more people to "shake off"  their long-time sick or disabled family members.

The lenient sentence seems to me reasonable.
It is a crime for sure, but  
obviously this judge took circumstances into account and not just a stubborn "law executioner".

Well ............

As I have always maintained ...........

Time will see changes made, and the changes may seem slow .........

But this is more natural than the violence we see in the rest of the world  ..........

The fact that she tried to take her own life indicated she was under great pressure. Maybe she felt exhausted. But that doesn't justify the killing of other people's lives.

It is still a terrible crime that deserves a sentence of far more than 5 years.

I such a case I hesitate to judge over her, since I do not know her, her biography, her social environment, her mental state.

Did she got help and support from others (relatives, friends, government) ?

The decision is a welcome change, to often we observe judges who do not look further than the law book in front of their eyes.

It is still a terrib ...

A 5-year sentence will send out a wrong signal to the public: "getting rid of" your sick family members is not a hideous crime, it's "understandable".
