Judge Denies Alternative Sentencing for Misty Linger in Upshur County

Posted: Updated:

An Upshur County woman was sent to prison Monday for a crime she committed nearly four years ago.

Circuit Judge John Henning denied Misty Linger alternative sentencing Monday afternoon.

Linger had earlier agreed to plead guilty to charges of child neglect resulting in death.

Linger's 3-year-old son died in 2009 from heat exposure.

He was found in a car with the windows rolled up.
