    NY - Andrew Gray, 4, beaten to death, mom charged, Sept 2004

    NEW YORK -- The mother of a four-year-old boy who died of hypothermia and dehydration after being left tied up in a closet was sentenced to 11 years in prison.

    In Suffolk County, 27-seven-year-old Nakia Whitmire was convicted of manslaughter in the death of her son, Andrew Gray.

    At first, Whitmire told police that she was angry with her son for misbehaving and "picked him up and shook him hard," punched him, and shoved him into a wall, causing him to hit his head on a TV stand.

    But medical examiners determined Andrew died in a far more gruesome way.

    Suffolk Assistant District Attorney Denise Merrifield said that she beat the child, forced him into a stuffy closet, pinned him under a laundry basket filled with clothes so he would not move, "shut the closet, and left."

    The prosecutor said it "was like a poor animal in an overheated car."

    Only 11 yrs for torture and murder. another judge to add to my hate list.

    "stuffy closet"..."like a poor animal in an overheated car"I think they meant hyperthermia.
