(INDIANAPOLIS) - Latasha McMorris of Indianapolis was sentenced to 20 years in prison Tuesday morning in the death of her son.

The 25 year-old mother pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependant which resulted in her son's death. Two year-old Sheldon Bartley was found dead in a motel in February.

McMorris, who has a history of alcohol abuse and child neglect, had become so intoxicated that she passed out on top of her son and suffocated him.
