A Raleigh County woman who pleaded guilty charges of child neglect that resulted in the death of one of her children was sentenced in court on Tuesday, Jan. 21.
Brandy Smallwood of Fairdale went before Judge Hutchison. She pleaded guilty in October 2013 to two counts of child neglect that resulted in the death of one of her children and the brutal beating of the other.
Smallwood sobbed in court as she begged for forgiveness and listened once again to the series of events last year that led to the death of her two-year-old son.
She is also never allowed to live with someone under the age of 18 again or have any contact with her two living children for the rest of her life.
Smallwood's husband of just a few hours, was sentenced to life with mercy for the murder of the child and two to 10 years in prison for the beating of the other. That happened earlier in January.
