Waco, Tx — A Waco mom has been sentenced to life in prison, after a jury found her guilty of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and injury to a child.
Tita Yvette Easley was indicted in March 2012 for beating and burning both of her sons on multiple occasions. Easly is also convicted of trying to drown one of the boys. Both of the kids were under ten years old.
Easley has a documented history of mental illness.
During the trial, the defense failed to convince a jury that it was Easley's Schizophrenia and failure to take medications due to her being pregnant that led to the episodes of abuse.
