Greenwood Woman Sentenced To 10 Years Probation In Son’s Death
PARIS (KFSM) — A Greenwood woman received her sentence after she pleaded guilty to manslaughter charges in the death of her infant son Harper in July 2014, according to Logan County Prosecuting Attorney Tom Tatum.
Brooke Floyd, 22, was sentenced to 10 years probation.
A probable cause affidavit had stated her 10-month-old son died of “exposure and abandonment” in the Ouchita Mountains near Danville. Her husband Brian Floyd was also found dead, but she was not charged with his death.
Brooke Floyd surrendered herself to authorities Aug. 5, 2014 and was released from jail on the $50,000 bond she previously posted. She was also arrested on suspicion of hindering apprehension and endangering a minor.
Floyd will also pay a fine of $1,000 and receive mental health counseling monthly during the first year of her probation, according to Tatum.
