CLARENDON, Texas (AP) — A Texas Panhandle woman whose 4-year-old grandson died after beatings by her son must serve 90 days in jail for not seeking medical help for the boy.

Gayle Edes of Clarendon pleaded guilty to felony injury to a child by omission. A judge in Clarendon on Monday also sentenced Edes to 10 years of probation and fined her $10,000.

Authorities placed Chance Mark Jones with his father in mid-December 2010 while the boy’s mother faced allegations of neglect.

Authorities believe Robert Monroe Babcock started beating the boy on Christmas Eve 2010 and continued to attack the child over several days. Chance died Jan. 5, 2011, a day after being taken to an Amarillo hospital.

A jury in June convicted Babcock of capital murder. He’s serving life in prison without parole.
