A St. Joseph woman who drowned her 6-month-old son was sentenced to life in prison.

Sydney Jones was sentenced last week for child abuse resulting in death. The jury found her guilty in July after a witness testified that he found Jones holding his son, Keith Lars III, in the water in 2017.

The police testified that she acted strangely and said she was "a child of God".

At the hearing, Jones said, "I get up every day and I think I can not save my son." A prison official said Jones had had several bouts during his incarceration.
