Fox News: A Kansas woman who says she “lost it” when her 2-year-old son refused to eat a hot dog has been sentenced to more than 19 years in prison for his beating death.
Little Anthony “Tony” Bunn died a horrible death in May 2018, authorities said.
The sentence was delivered Friday to 24-year-old Elizabeth Woolheater of Wichita, who pleaded guilty to murder and child abuse, the Wichita Eagle reported.
Tony’s grandmother Nancy Woolheater told the judge she hopes her daughter gets help in prison, the paper reported.
“If he was here, I think the only question he would have for you is, ‘Why?’” the grandmother said, according to the paper. “‘Why, mommy? Why didn’t you protect me? Why didn’t you love me enough? I loved you.’”
