NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut judge has scheduled a hearing to possibly put a mother of four behind bars after she lost a bid to get her entire five-year prison sentence suspended.

Latasha O’Bryan was sentenced to five years in prison in 2012 for stabbing another woman in New Haven. The victim survived. O’Bryan called it self-defense, but jurors concluded it was premeditated.

O’Bryan is worried her children will end up in foster care if she goes to prison, because none of her relatives can care for them. Her prison sentence was put on hold during her appeals.

The state parole board recently commuted O’Bryan’s sentence to two years and one day after she pleaded for leniency.

Judge Patrick Clifford has ordered O’Bryan to appear in New Haven Superior Court on July 14.
