Jennifer Bryant, the Muskingum College student accused of killing her newborn baby was back in court on Thursday for the start of her sentencing hearing. Bryant pleaded guilty on March 28th to involuntary manslaughter, child endangering and abuse of a corpse. During today’s hearing, the court’s chief probation officer testified that a prison sentence would be appropriate for Bryant. A psychologist also testified that Bryant is not likely to kill again. Judge Butch Zwelling is taking all of today’s testimony under advisement. He is expected to sentence Bryant on June 2. Bryant is facing a possible 16 years behind bars. She was arrested in February of 2002 after authorities say she dumped the body of her newborn baby boy in a trash dumpster near her apartment.
