April 10, 2019

JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — A 25-year-old southern Michigan woman has been sentenced to 10-15 years in prison for the death of a 14-month-old boy she was caring for.

Amber Lynn Reeves of Jackson learned her punishment Wednesday after pleading guilty to manslaughter and child abuse in the Oct. 11 death of Logan Tracy from blunt force abdominal trauma and complications. Reeves was dating the boy’s father at the time.

Reeves apologized in court for killing Logan.

Reeves claimed the boy also was being abused by his father, but police and prosecutors say there’s no evidence indicating anyone hurt Logan except Reeves.

Susan Ziegler, Logan’s grandmother, says that for Reeves “to say she takes full responsibility and in the same breath accuses my son of abuse is despicable. She has shown no remorse.”
