After deliberating for less than half an hour on Friday and an hour Tuesday morning, a Dallas County jury has sentenced a North Texas stepmother for her role in the death of a 10-year-old boy.
Jurors on Tuesday will resume deliberating the punishment for a Dallas woman convicted in the dehydration death of her 10-year stepson.
Both the father of a 10-year-old boy who died from dehydration back in 2011, and the child’s twin brother were on the witness stand in Dallas on Thursday. The two testified against the woman they say is responsible for the death of Jonathan James.
Police say the father and stepmother of the boy played a part in his death.
