San Jose Mum Who Lied About Son's Slaying Get's Jail Sentence

A judge has given a one-year jail term to a San Jose woman who watched her 6-year-old son get stomped to death and then helped bury his body behind a house.

Kathryn Jimenez was initially charged as an accessory in the February 2007 murder of her son, Oscar.

She pleaded guilty to that charge and a separate charge of child endangerment.

Judge Jerome Nadler handed down the comparatively light jail term along with five years probation today after accepting defense arguments that Jimenez also was a victim of domestic violence.

Her boyfriend, Samuel Corona, is awaiting trial for murder in Oscar's death.
