A Kansas woman learned this week that she will spend a quarter of a century behind bars in connection with the death of her 3-year-old son, whose body was found submerged in concrete at a home in Wichita in 2017.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, 37-year-old Miranda Miller was convicted last year after confessing that she helped her boyfriend, 41-year-old Stephen Bodine, conceal young Evan Brewer’s remains.
A judge handed down the 310-month sentence in a hearing on Thursday, according to KMBC.
Miller was found guilty of criminal counts including murder in the second degree, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated child endangerment, and child abuse.
Bodine was charged with multiple crimes and convicted in October of murder in the first degree, two counts of kidnapping, aggravated child endangerment, and child abuse.
The young victim’s father spoke out about his loss at that time, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
Carlo Brewer said his son “didn’t get to have the imagination like other children, where they think there’s monsters in their closets or under their beds,” adding that the toddler “had real monsters.”
Miller admitted that Bodine took her son into a bathroom on the day he died to inflict a punishment for refusing to eat. When her boyfriend returned, she said he was carrying Evan Brewer’s dead body.
