Calgary mother gets 13 years after confessing to killing infant in her diary

June 22, 2012 - 12:46 PM

CALGARY - A Calgary mother who confessed to killing her infant son in diary entries to her dead husband has been sentenced to 13 years in prison.

Justice Terry Semenuk sentenced Stacey Joy Bourdeaux to four years for manslaughter, eight years for the attempted murder of a second child and one year for failing to provide the necessities of life.

Bourdeaux stood quietly during the sentencing and showed little emotion.

She was given credit of three years and five months for time already served, meaning she has another nine years and seven months left on her sentence.

Bourdeaux, who is 34-year-old, earlier pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of 10-month-old Sean Ronald Fewer in 2004 and to the attempted murder of her five-year-old boy in 2010.

She also admitted to failing to provide the necessities of life.
