San Antonio woman gets 19 years in toddler death
SAN ANTONIO -- A San Antonio woman has been sentenced to 19 years in prison for the death of a toddler in her care while the child's mother was incarcerated.
A jury in San Antonio on Tuesday night sentenced Sarah Sifuentes. Prosecutors say 22-month-old Cyleste Gonzales died in October 2008 after suffering an internal abdominal injury.
Jurors on Friday convicted Sifuentes of injury to a child by omission causing serious bodily injury. Her husband, Mark Andrew Valdez, awaits trial on the same charge.
Authorities say Sifuentes had been caring for the girl while the child's mother was in prison in a drug case.
