Updated February 18, 2014:  A Frontenac, Kansas woman has been sentenced in the death of her 13 month old son.

Authorities say Cory Jones Jr. was strangled by the straps of his child safety seat in October 2011.  The child's mother, Cara Lloyd, plead guilty in October 2013 to voluntary manslaughter.  She had originally been charged with first-degree murder.

On Tuesday, Lloyd was sentenced to 61 months in prison.  The judge credited her for the 320 days she has already spent in jail.


Updated October 2, 2012:  A Frontenac, Kansas woman accused of killing her 13 month old son has been bound over for trial.

Cara Lloyd is charged with first degree murder and is custody on a $500,000 bond in the Crawford County jail.

The child died in October 2011 and Lloyd was arrested and charged with first degree murder in April 2012.

Lloyd is scheduled to appear in court on December 10, 2012.

Updated April 18, 2012:  Crawford County attorney Michael Gayoso confirms a woman charged in the death of a toddler is seven months pregnant.

Cara M. Lloyd of Frontenac was arrested and charged on Tuesday in the death of her 13 month old son, who died in October 2011.

Gayoso tells us the five month delay was because officers wanted to conduct a proper investigation, they were waiting for the final autopsy, and the investigation is still ongoing.  Gayoso says he received paperwork on the investigation last week.

Lloyd has other children but Gayoso says he can not reveal their location at this time.

Lloyd's next hearing is scheduled for August 7.

Reported April 17, 2012:  First degree murder charges are filed against a Frontenac, Kansas woman following the suspicious death of a 13 month old child.

On October 29, 2011 police arrived at the scene of an unresponsive 13 month old in the 100 block of North Labette in Frontenac.  The infant was transported to Via Christi Hospital in Pittsburg, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators found potential evidence indicating the death was suspicious.

After a five month investigation Cara M. Lloyd, the mother of the child, was arrested today (April 17) and is being held on a $500,000 bond.  The Crawford County attorney's office confirmed that the charges were filed this morning.

An arraignment is scheduled for tomorrow (April 18).
