A mother is headed to prison after pleading guilty to killing her baby.

The Duplin County District Attorney says Cynthia Chesnutt entered the plea to second degree murder in the November 2007 murder of her 21 month year old daughter.

Authorities say she shook her baby to death.

Chesnutt was sentenced to 15 to 19 and a half years in prison.

Authorities say Chesnutt is a mother of 5, and say her 21 month old was not breathing when authorities responded to her home in Magnolia fifteen months ago.
