ANDERSON, Ind. – An Indiana woman will spend up to 30 years in prison for killing a mother and trying to go out of the woman’s 3-month-old baby as her own.
The Herald Bulletin reports that the 39-year-old Geraldine R. Jones was sentenced Friday in Anderson, Indiana. Jones also was ordered to serve 10 years probation. She pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter and criminal confinement.
The prosecutors have said that Jones drove to Samantha J. Fleming’s home in Anderson, in 2015 and posed as a state child services worker. Jones reportedly told the 23-year-old Fleming was she there to drive her and the baby to a session.
Fleming’s body was later found in Jones’ Gary home. Fleming was stabbed, her body doused with bleach.
Jones told family and neighbors she was pregnant with twins.
