Nashua mother pleads guilty to manslaughter death of son
In a plea agreement, Gould, 22, of Nashua, pleaded guilty on Friday to manslaughter. A Hillsborough County Superior Court judge sentenced Gould to 12 to 30 years in prison for the beating death of Devon Gould on April 25, 2013.
According to court documents, Gould "admitted that she struck (Devon) numerous times on his buttocks, and confirmed that she also struck him in the head with her hand. Gould made admissions that she 'blacked out' at one point, and admitted to hitting (Devon) very hard."
Following the attack, the child went to bed and slept for up to 20 hours before Gould placed him in the shower and shook him in an attempt to wake the toddler, according to prosecutors.
Gould eventually called 911, but only after roommates and family members said they would call themselves if Gould didn't take action, according to prior court testimony.
The child was then rushed to the hospital for immediate medical attention, and was subsequently placed on life support.
The boy's father, Christopher Parr, ultimately decided to end life support two weeks later because the child was brain dead, relatives said earlier.
The child suffered a serious brain injury, significant head trauma and intracranial bleeding because of the assault, according to court records.
