Woman Sentenced to 20 Years for Abusing Infant Son

Posted: Updated:

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - A Frederick woman has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for abuse that caused the death of her infant son.

Twenty-four-year-old Elizabeth Tramonte had entered an Alford plea to first-degree child abuse resulting in death. At sentencing Monday in Frederick County Circuit Court, Tramonte was ordered to serve her term at the Patuxent Institution, a state mental health correctional facility.

Tramonte was charged in the November 2011 asphyxiation death of 3-month-old Blake Tramonte.

Prosecutors say an autopsy and subsequent investigation revealed evidence of physical abuse.
