TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A Toledo grandmother who confessed to killing her grandson in 2019 will spend at least 15 years behind bars.

Yisenya Flores was sentenced to serve between 15 years and life in prison after pleading guilty to murder and child endangerment earlier this month. She will be eligible for parole after 15 years.

Anjuan Hare III was living with Flores while his mother served time for some minor offenses. After Hare died, Flores told investigators he jumped from a mattress and hurt himself, but doctors told investigators the injuries weren’t consistent with falling.

Flores eventually confessed that she hit the boy the day before and that he seemed lethargic and couldn’t get up from the floor.
