JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A local couple has been sentenced for the death of their child.

Cordero Webber is going to prison for 45 years.  He received 30 years for manslaughter of a child and 15 years for aggravated child neglect.

Kierra Hayes-Laird received one year in jail, two years of community control and five years of probation.

Prosecutors said their 5-month-old boy, Cordero Webber Jr., was found not breathing at his home.

Investigators said he suffered a blow to his head and died at home. Doctors later discovered multiple bruises and abrasions on the baby's cheeks, chin, head and ears.  The boy also suffered from severe malnutrition.

After seeing everyone else’s comments on why the mother didn't receive a higher sentence I looked up the babies name and found this: apparently daddy beat the hell out of the kid while mommy was at work, or smoking pot or whatever, and when she asked about the bruises (caused by 5 fractured ribs) he (the father) responded with he's ok at which point she did not follow up. I believe the main aggressor is the father given the reports found online however a mother should be smart and strong enough to stand up for her children no matter what. Rest in Peace you poor innocent soul..

That child never had a chance to grow and be somebody. No child should have to endure that kind of torture. God holds us accountable to be good parents. If we don't then someone else should take over. Why did the mother get a lesser charge? She should be liable too as the father was.

What is WRONG with people???? My God, this is a little Angel that was violated by the people who had the gift of this little life, to protect and nuture it, to give him every chance they could to live a life better and fuller than theier own... MAJOR FAIL LOSERS... both should be put to death for the pain the little one endured... the mother should be beat to death slowly so she can see what it feels like, SHE IS THE PROTECTOR of the young, the "father"(sperm donor) is the protector of the family as well as the provider. Remeber that, and any Angels out there that are not wanted I would take gladly... so sad, go home to heaven and leave this terribly painful world behind little one.

So the mother wasn't as responsible in this death? Malnutrition sounds like murder to me...1 year and 2 years of community control. Now what exactly is Community Control?

Poor little baby! Hopefully this POS will get his 'just due' in his new home. We'll see just how big and tough he is then.
