Back in March, a Bedford County jury sentenced Cecelia Burnette to eight years in prison after convicting her of felony child abuse, on March 17, in the death of her infant daughter, Marissa. Today, she was back in Bedford County Circuit Court for formal sentencing.
Burnette's defense team of David Oblon, Hilary Griffith put Burnette's mother on the stand in an effort to persuade Judge James Updike to impose a different sentence.
"She is the only child I have," said Robin Lambert, Burnette's mother.
