Judge: Mother Convicted of Killing Newborn will Serve Entire Sentence

Cleveland, OH - The woman convicted of killing her newborn baby boy will remain behind bars.

Jessica Coleman was sentenced in February after pleading guilty to manslaughter - but appealed because she felt her 6-year sentence was too harsh.

Coleman was 15-years-old when she gave birth alone in her bedroom in 1999.

Her boyfriend at the time helped dispose of the baby's body.

He is also serving a prison sentence.
