The Judge told Mairead Philpott: "You put Michael Philpott above your children and as a result they have died."
She was sentenced to 17 years in prison and will be required to serve half before being released on licence.
Mick Philpott stuck two fingers up in court as the Judge told him he was a "disturbingly dangerous man" and would be sent to jail for life.
Speaking exclusively to ITV News, Dawn Bestwick said jail wasn't good enough for MIck Philpott and that "as a coward" he "deserved to die".
The judge has delayed her sentencing to "reflect further" on the trial Mick and Mairead Philpott and friend Paul Mosley.
