Woman Is Sentenced For The Death Of Her Three Month Old Baby

A woman who is nine-months pregnant was sentenced for the death of her 3-month old baby.

Sarah Davenport was sentenced to 5 years in prison.

She accepted a plea deal back in May and was back in a Whitley County courtroom Monday.

She was originally charged with manslaughter, but pleaded guilty to reckless homicide.

Investigators say Davenport allowed her three month old son to take cocaine and cough medicine.
