Mother Who Killed Then Dumped Baby's Body Receives 12 Years In State Prison

An Athens mother will spend 12 years in state prison for killing her baby then tossing him the trash.
Twenty-one-year-old Tiaka Barron put her baby's body in a dumpster last year behind the Applebee's Restaurant on Highway 3 in Athens.
She pleaded guilty to injury to a child, but was also charged with capital murder. Barron waived her right to a jury trial.
District Attorney Donna Bennett said the state dismissed the murder charge because the judge sentenced Barron on the injury to a child charge.
