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.
