A Waco woman is sentenced to 35 years in prison for first-degree felony, injury to a child.

Tammy Lou Beckett pleaded guilty Thursday to injuring a child in her care. Beckett reportedly shook a 10-month old, and she threw the baby across the room. Police say the baby suffered a fractured skull and brain damage.

Beckett was charged in March 2008 for the incident. She will serve at least 17 1/2 years before she is up for parole.
