Another Plea, Sentence: ‘Mom’ Convicted in Brutal Death of Toddler Son

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Justice for the Canton toddler killed when his mother piled furniture on top of him last year.

25-year-old Mary Guarendi was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison Friday after pleading guilty to a murder charge.

An insanity defense was rejected by the court.

You’ll recall that 18-month-old Kevin Walker Jr was found unresponsive under heavy furniture in the living room of his home on Maple Avenue near 19th Street NE last May.

His father 30-year-old Kevin Walker Sr got 11 to 16-and-a-half years on an involuntary manslaughter plea.

Guarendi reportedly did not speak at the sentencing hearing.
