Almost two years ago, the mother of 2-year-old Hevin Dakota Jenkins reported him missing the day after Christmas. Her sister, Tonya Sloan, had been watching the toddler at her home in Salt Rock in Cabell County.

Sloan originally told authorities her nephew was kidnapped, then said he died after a medical emergency. But on Tuesday, Sloan admitted in a Cabell County courtroom that she killed her nephew. She was then sentenced to 40 years in prison. Kristin Murdock reports.
