CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

A Detroit-area mother will serve five to 20 years in prison in the death of her 18-month-old son.

Twenty-three-year-old Brandee Wright was sentenced last week.

Wright pleaded guilty in January to involuntary manslaughter and child abuse. She is expected to testify against her boyfriend, William Mark Warren III, at his April trial.

Amere Carver was found unresponsive in August in a Clinton Township apartment, northeast of Detroit. He died two days later of head trauma and other injuries.

Police have said the boy was in Warren's care at the time.

The 23-year-old Warren woman is charged with felony murder and child abuse.

Police have said Wright asked a roommate to lie to investigators about who was watching Amere.
