GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A Parachute woman who pleaded guilty to child abuse that caused the death of her month-old daughter has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports (https://goo.gl/WfNUgi) 42-year-old Phyllis “Amy” Wyatt was sentenced Friday for the June 20 death of Sarah Ogden, who had a bruised liver and a fractured skull.

Sarah’s father, 30-year-old Matthew Ogden, is charged with first-degree murder and child abuse.

Police say Wyatt told them Ogden violently shook the baby overnight, but Wyatt did not get out of bed. The two skipped town before arrest warrants were issued but were arrested a short time later in Minnesota.

Wyatt said in court Friday she is remorseful and that “I will be living in hell forever.”

It’s unclear if Ogden has hired an attorney.
