The mother of an infant whose body was found in a wooded area of North Port is going to prison.
Kristin Bury took a plea deal and will serve 25 years for the death of her 9-week-old son, Chance Walsh.
Chance disappeared last fall, and several weeks later he was found buried in a shallow grave.
Investigators say Chance was severely abused, and that his body was left in a crib for several days before the couple buried him.
Never miss a local story.
As part of the plea deal, Bury will testify against Chance's father, Joseph Walsh. Deputies say Walsh beat the baby to death in September. He is facing second-degree murder charges.
