A Humphreys County woman has been sentenced to life plus five years for the beating of her
22-month-old daughter and failing to get the infant medical attention.
WABG-TV reports 28-year-old Tinika Williams pleaded guilty last week to the incident that occurred in 2010 in her Belzoni home.
Prosecutors say the infant survived the beating but has suffered brain damage and multiple other injuries. The child is now in foster care.
Circuit Judge Jannie Lewis sentenced Williams to life in prison for felony child abuse and five years for felony child neglect.
