KALAMAZOO, Mich. — A Portage mother accused of killing her baby has reached a plea deal.
Jennifer Mohler pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Thursday. She was initially charged with two counts of first-degree child abuse and one count of murder.
Portage Police said they responded to a medical call on January 31, 2018 and found 5-month-old twin brothers, Noah and Logan Mohler, with injuries and signs of physical abuse.
Police said Mohler admitted to hitting the boys with a glasses case and an open hand to keep them quiet. Noah was placed in protective custody. Logan died a week later from his injuries.
Mohler is expected to receive a minimum 20-year prison sentence.
