Lacey Spears Sentencing Wednesday

The 27-year old former Chestnut Ridge mother Lacey Spears will be seen in court for sentencing later Wednesday. Spears was found guilty by a jury in early March, after being accused of poisoning her five-year old son Garnett with lethal amounts of sodium. The young boy was required to wear a feeding tube to obtain nutrients, and after entering the hospital in January of 2014, succumbed to sickness. Doctors called the police when they found large amounts of sodium in the boys’s blood, and an investigation began, leading to the woman’s arrest. Spears faces 15 to 25 years to life in prison for the charge of second-degree murder, and prosecutors have stated that they will be seeking a life sentence.
