Mother sentenced in death of son
Holly A. Brewer has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleaded guilty in June to second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.
Her son, 18-month-old John Thomas Anthony Brewer, died from injuries inflicted by her boyfriend, Jeffery Denby, on June 22, 2009.
Denby was sentenced to life in prison in May.
Brewer's attorney argued the sentence was excessive and said he will appeal it.
