Woman Gets 30 Months For Suffocating Baby


A woman has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for suffocating her baby.

Wilberta Means earlier pleaded guilty in federal court to abuse of a minor and has already served most of her time.

The child's father, Jacob Iron Horse, also pleaded guilty to abuse of a minor and was sent to prison for 30 months.

Iron Horse said he and Means were drinking heavily and passed out. He said he awoke November 3, 2006, to find that their daughter, 14-month-old JonTay Iron Horse, had been smothered behind Means on a couch.

The baby died from a lack of oxygen.

Means was initially found mentally incompetent to stand trial, but a judge later said she understood the charges and could help with her defense.
