Kayla Monique Stouten-Orozco of Galveston, Texas, will spend her next ten years in prison for felony endangerment of a child after she tied pajamas around her 15-month-old daughter's head when she wouldn't stop crying.
The 24-year-old woman was initially charged with murder, but a jury found her guilty instead of the lesser crime of felony endangering a child. It's not immediately clear how the jury arrived at this conclusion.
The child was suffocated to death.
KTRK reported the heartbreaking details of what happened on Sept. 15, 2014.
One of Stouten-Orozco's other children told authorities that Stouten-Orozco, tired of listening to her daughter cry, tied a pair of pajama bottoms around the child's face and head.
The child attempted to get the pajama bottoms from around the baby's face but was unsuccessful. Stouten-Orozco eventually asked a neighbor to call 911 for help. EMS testified that Estrellia had already been dead for about 1 to 2 hours by the time they got there.
Stouten-Orozco will be eligible for parole, however, once the first five years of her sentence have been served.
