Will spend at least a decade in prison.

Sentencing is now scheduled for May 12.

A Jackson mother convicted of killing her nine-month-old son will spend the next 10 to 15 years in prison. That was the sentence given to Amber Murphy. She pleaded no contest to manslaughter earlier this year instead of going to trial on murder and child abuse charges. The child died of blunt force trauma to the head in August 2009.
