PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- A judge has ordered a southeast Kansas woman to spend 30 days in jail followed by three years' probation for the death of her 4-month-old son.

KOAM-TV reports (http://bit.ly/18BkuQX ) 25-year-old Heather Buckalew, of Arma, was sentenced Tuesday in Crawford County District Court.

Buckalew pleaded no contest in July to involuntary manslaughter in the death of Memphis Cash Harvey in August 2012.

Prosecutors believe the baby was smothered when Buckalew rolled over onto him while they were sleeping. Investigators said the mother was inebriated at the time.

Buckalew was initially charged with second-degree murder, but the judge reduced the charge to involuntary manslaughter.
