James Dwight Robinson, Minley's live-in boyfriend, had been convicted on murder and abuse charges in June 2016. He was sentenced to life in prison plus two 17-year terms.

Minley will be sentenced May 1.

Minley's son Jaedyn died March 2013 after being beaten but both Minley and Robinson, authorities said.

"According to Minley, her son was toilet trained, but would have accidents," the PCAO said in a news release. "As a result, his water intake was limited.

"As punishment for sneaking water from bathroom faucet one day, Minley repeatedly struck the young victim with a leather sandal."

The PCAO said Robinson took over the beating, and added more punishment.

"Robinson alternated his punishments, from a workout, where he made (Jaedyn) hold bottles of detergent at his sides, to hitting him with the sandal," the PCAO said.

Robinson allegedly hit Jaedyn so many times, the sandal broke. Minley then taped it back together so Robinson could continue beating the child.

"When Minley and Robinson grew tired, the young victim was put to bed, and he never woke up," according to the PCAO.

The couple called 911 the next day. Jaedyn was rushed to a local hospital but he died two days later despite being on life support.

"The victim had extensive bruising all over his body, which a treating doctor described as severe trauma," the PCAO said. "After an autopsy, it was determined that the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the body."
