WASHINGTON -- (WZTV) -- Maryland mom was sentenced to 25 years in prison Friday in the beating death of her 9-year-old son over a missing piece of birthday cake.

27-year-old Oriana Garcia pleaded guilty to first-degree child abuse back in February.

Garcia's son Jack was handcuffed to a chair by Garcia's brother and pummeled by her boyfriend, who suspected Jack of eating cake meant for his 2-year-old daughter.

Police say Garcia allowed the abuse and sent away an ambulance as Jack lay dying.
