A judge sentenced an Oklahoma City mother to 35 years in prison in exchange for her testifying against her boyfriend in the death of her three-year-old daughter.

On October 30, 2011, emergency crews were called to an apartment at 12831 Stratford Drive in northwest Oklahoma City to help an unresponsive child. Alexis Hawkins was taken to Children's Hospital where medical staff noticed several signs of abuse.
