Sydney Jones

(MSC News)--A St. Joseph, Missouri woman convicted of drowning her infant son in a bathtub has been sentenced to life in prison.

KQ2-TV reports 29-year-old Sydney Jones was handed the sentence Thursday.

A Buchanan County jury found Jones guilty in July of child abuse, or neglect that resulted in the death of her 6-month-old son, Keith Lars, III.

He was found dead on December 7, 2017 after police responded to a 911 call at an apartment complex in the 200 block of Texas Avenue.

A witness testified at Jones' trial that he found her holding the baby down in the water, with water up to her forearms.
