26-year-old Jessica McClure was sentenced after pleading guilty in July to one count of involuntary manslaughter charge and three counts of endangering children. McClure said during her plea hearing, that in November of 2018, she had put her boys down for a nap. The 2-year-old woke up at some point and found a box to crawl into on the floor, which had pills in it and swallowed them. The unresponsive toddler was taken to the ambulatory care center where he was pronounced dead.
