MAGNOLIA, Texas – A jury delivered their verdict Thursday for a mother accused of a brutal attack on her 5-year-old son.
The jury found 45-year-old Daphne Spurlock guilty of attempted capital murder and sentenced her to 40 years in prison.
It happened at their home in Magnolia in March 2012.
Michael is now being cared for by his sister who said he’s made great strides since the attack. He spent almost 18 months in rehab after a month in the hospital, but has recovered enough that he’s now back in school.
