A court official says a Monticello couple has been sentenced to 25 years in prison in the death of the woman's 18-month-old son.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports 22-year-old Kayla Lord and 20-year-old Jared Futrell were sentenced Wednesday in Wayne County Circuit Court in the 2011 death of Staten Stephenson.

Lord and Futrell were convicted of murder in February. They had said they found the boy unresponsive and caused injuries to him in trying to get him to breathe. The prosecution said the child was bruised head to foot and said there was a pattern of abuse.
