Woman sentenced to 10 years in nephew’s death

Posted: December 11, 2013 - 7:06am

ANCHORAGE — A 27-year-old woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in the death of her nephew, who died of injuries suffered while she was babysitting.

Christina Moua of Anchorage was sentenced Friday in the death of 6-month-old Caiioun Xiong.

Prosecutors say he was shaken and dropped. He suffered a fractured skull, broken collarbone and other injuries in May 2010.

The Anchorage Daily News reports Moua in June pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter. Prosecutors dropped a second-degree murder charge.

Judge Kevin Saxby sentenced Moua to 18 years with eight suspended.

Moua has three children of her own. She told police the infant would not stop crying and she shook him and dropped him into a car seat.
