A Coffey County woman will spend more than 13 years in prison after being sentenced in the death of her newborn son.

Karen Marie Bailey, 23, of LeRoy, was sentenced Thursday to 161 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections. She previously pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and aggravated endangerment of a child on June 1.

Bailey gave birth to her son on April 2, 2011, in her car between Iola and LeRoy. She then left the infant unattended in the car for several hours, resulting in his death.

Assistant Attorney General Lee Davidson and Coffey County Attorney Doug Witteman prosecuted the case.
