Mom Charged With Murder Takes Plea Deal

A central Kentucky mother, accused of smoking so much crack around her daughter that the girl died, entered a guilty plea on Friday morning.

Jamie Jockers took a plea deal in Franklin County.

Her six-month-old baby died from second-hand crack smoke inhalation, according to the coroner.

Jockers plead guilty to second degree manslaughter in exchange for a recommended 12 year sentence.

She was initially charged with murder.

Her boyfriend, Michael McIntyre, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and is serving a 25 year sentence.
