GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A woman who pleaded guilty in connection with the death of a foster baby she was caring for has been sentenced to more than 30 years in prison.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1Qb3QAI ) 21-year-old Sydney White was sentenced Monday to 30 years, plus a consecutive one-year sentence for tampering with evidence, in the death of 11-month-old Angel Place.

White pleaded guilty in August to child abuse resulting in death and tampering with physical evidence.

Social workers removed Angel from her biological parents and placed her with White and her husband and their two children in July 2014.

Grand Junction police say White told them she violently shook Angel, grabbing the child with both hands by the neck Sept. 15 when the infant wouldn’t stop crying.
