BUCHANAN COUNTY, Mo. – A woman was sentenced Thursday, to life in prison, for the drowning of her six month old son in 2017. A Buchanan County jury found Sydney Jones, 29, of St. Joseph, guilty in July of one count of child abuse or neglect, resulting in death. Police responded to a 911 call in December 2017, for a possible child drowning at an apartment on Texas Avenue. A witness told officers that Jones pinned the child under water until it quit breathing.
