Danville Woman Sentenced in Shaking Death of Baby


Danville, VA - A Danville woman accused of killing her two-month-old baby has been sentenced to 22 years behind bars.

The autopsy on Michelle Pruitt's baby showed he had rib fractures and internal head trauma related to being shaken.

"I didn't see him moving or nothing. I just seen him have a what's that thing? Oxygen. And he was just laying there," said neighbor Danielle Wright.

Wright described the scene the night Alphonza O'Brien Fuller, III was taken to the hospital.

Pruitt pleaded guilty to two counts of felony child abuse and neglect and one count of felony murder.

The Commonwealth's attorney says Pruitt threw him five feet across the bed.
