CELINA ó The prison term for a St. Henry woman sentenced more than a year ago over the death of an infant was reduced Thursday by a year.



Tamara Evers, 48, was sentenced to 10 years prison for involuntary manslaughter. This was in addition to the three-year sentence she received for perjury. She has to serve 13 years, one fewer than the sentence Mercer County Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Ingraham gave her in December 2011.



The case was returned on appeal for resentencing after the appellate court ruled Evers should have been sentenced under the old law which provided a maximum penalty of 10 years, not 11, which Ingraham gave her for involuntary manslaughter.



Evers declined to make a statement.



Evers was convicted in the death of 6-month-old Trevor J. Stammen, of St. Henry, on July 8, 2008. Evers was the childís† sitter. She was watching him at her home when he suffered head trauma.



The Montgomery County Coronerís Office ruled Trevor, the son of Brian and Angela Stammen, of St. Henry, died of blunt-force trauma to the head.



Evers faced a total of nine criminal charges before she reached a plea agreement.
