SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- A Salina woman will be sentenced Sept. 8 after pleading no contest to first-degree murder in the death of her 3-month-old son.

Twenty-one-year-old Desirah N. Overturf is expected to be sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.

KWCH-TV reports police were called to the couple's home in December because of an unresponsive child. The infant, Jordan Corbin, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of the baby's death has not been released.

The child's father, 27-year-old Nicholas J. Corbin, is scheduled for arraignment Sept. 8, on charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and other crimes in the baby's death.
