OGLE COUNTY, Ill. (WTVO) — The Ogle County mother accused of killing her own son enters a plea in court.
Sarah Safranek appeared in an Oregon courtroom Wednesday. She only spoke once, saying she understood the charges.
The 34-year-old is charged with First Degree Murder and Aggravated Battery of a Child. She was indicted by a Grand Jury on Tuesday.
In February, prosecutors say Safranek suffocated 7-year-old Nathaniel Burton inside their Oregon home.
If convicted, she faces up to 60 years in prison. She is due back in court June 9.
