South Dakota woman sentenced to 130 years in boys death

Posted: Updated:
 A 23-year-old Gann Valley woman has been sentenced to 130 years in prison for beating to death a 4-year-old boy because he wet his pants.
    
Donika Gonzales has been ordered to serve 130 years for first-degree manslaughter and 15 years for aggravated assault. The sentences will run concurrently. Attorney General Marty Jackley and Brule County States Attorney David Natvig announced the sentencing Tuesday afternoon.
    
The charges stem from an abuse incident on Feb. 21, 2013, that resulted in the boy's death. The boy was not Gonzales' son.
    
This case was investigated by the Buffalo County Sheriff's Office and the Division of Criminal Investigation and prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office and the Brule County States Attorney.
