JACKSON, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan woman who lost custody of her other children has been sentenced to at least two years in prison for involuntary manslaughter in the death of her infant.

Jackson County Circuit Judge John McBain on Wednesday sentenced 31-year-old Amanda Redman to two to five years behind bars in the death of her daughter, Amillia. Redman earlier pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

Amillia was found dead in her home in Jackson County's Blackman Township on April 2, 2013. Authorities say Redman awoke following a night of drinking to find the baby beneath her chest on the sofa. The cause of death was determined to be suffocation.

Amillia was Redman's seventh child. Rights to her other children were terminated in cases dating back to 2001.
