In Hopkins County, 31-year-old Alexis Mayes is sentenced to 14 years in prison a month after admitting to killing her boyfriend's 2-year-old son.

She was arrested in 2011, after Kaleb Higgins died of multiple blunt force trauma.

Mayes agreed to plead guilty to first-degree manslaughter to avoid a murder charge.
