OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the murder and child neglect convictions of a woman for the death of her 8-month-old son and neglect of her 16-month-old daughter.

The court on Thursday rejected appeals by 25-year-old Ruth Ann Lewis of Tulsa, who was sentenced to life plus 13 years in prison.

The son, identified only as Z.M., died in May 2016 of what an autopsy report said was blunt force trauma to the head.
