A Providence mother is going to prison in connection with her newborn baby's death.

24 year old Mayra Gonzalez was convicted of neglect and cruelty Monday afternoon and will be locked up for 15–months.

Five week old Kristina died last year after suffering from dozens of broken bones, a lacerated liver, and bleeding behind her eyes.

Her father, Christopher Jimenez is charged with beating her to death and is awaiting trial.

Prosecutors say Gonzalez did nothing to stop him.
