SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ A Salina woman was sentenced to about 13 years in prison for second-degree murder and not intervening to stop her boyfriend from abusing her 14-month-old son before his death.
Twenty-one-year-old Brittney Betzold was sentenced Friday for failing to protect her son over several days while bruises on his body got worse.
Prosecutors said Clayden Urbanek was beaten between Sept. 26 and Oct. 4, 2011 while he was being watched by Betzold's boyfriend, Antonio M. Brown. They say Betzold never physically abused her son but did nothing to help him and left him in Brown's care while she was a work.
The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/S9v2oL ) Brown is scheduled to go to trial in February on a charge of first-degree murder.
