PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- A 23-year-old southeast Kansas woman has been sentenced to more than 13 years in prison in the April death of her newborn son.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/N9oME6 ) that Karen Marie Bailey of LeRoy was sentenced Thursday to 13 years and seven months in prison. She pleaded guilty earlier to second-degree murder and aggravated endangerment of a child.
Prosecutors say Bailey gave birth April 2 in her car and left the baby unattended there for several hours, which resulted in his death.
