🕐 1 min read

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A North Texas woman has been sentenced to two years in state jail after being convicted of child endangerment in the 2015 death of her 2-year-old son in an attack blamed on her boyfriend.

Jessica Langlais of Fort Worth was indicted on a capital murder charge but jurors on Friday morning found her guilty of the lesser endangerment charge. Jurors later sentenced the mother to the maximum jail penalty over the death of her son, Adrian.

Langlais testified the toddler’s fatal injuries were caused by her boyfriend. Prosecutors say Christian Tyrrell smashed the toddler’s head against a wall.

Tyrrell in 2017 was convicted of capital murder in the death and sentenced to life in prison without chance for parole.
