A New York woman who admitted to killing her son through neglect will serve two years in federal prison for using his Social Security benefits — even about a year after he died.

“The defendant slowly killed her own son and then profited from his death,” prosecutors in the Northern District of New York wrote about Lisa  Marie Waldron, 44. “It is hard to imagine a crime more heinous or a series of acts more heartless.”

A state grand jury in Oswego County, New York, had indicted her and her husband, Anthony Waldron, for charges including second-degree murder after Jordan Brooks, 17, died of horrific neglect while living with cerebral palsy. Anthony Waldron is the boy’s stepfather.
