RICHMOND, VA—The Richmond mother convicted of killing her 2-year-old son was sentenced Monday to more than five years behind bars.

Ashley Williams was sentenced to 5 years behind bars on a charge of felony murder; a judge suspended a two year sentence on a charge of felony child neglect.  Williams was also sentenced to six months on a probation violation.

Authorities say Williams' 2-year-old son D'Sean Williams weighed just 14 pounds when he died of starvation and dehydration.

In June, Williams was convicted of murder and felony child neglect.
