Tacoma woman sentenced to 15 years for killing her 2-year-old son

walker2TACOMA — A Tacoma mother who called 911 last year to confess she had killed her 2-year-old son was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday.

Aleesha Walker, 29, earlier pleaded guilty in Pierce County Superior Court to second-degree murder in the death of Noah Sanford.

On March 30, 2012, Walker called 911 about 7 a.m. and told the operator she had just “murdered her child,” court documents stated. She told the operator she struck the child’s head on a dresser and made a comment about smothering him. She also said that voices in her head had been telling her to hurt the boy.

When officers arrived on the scene, they saw the toddler, naked on the floor with dried blood spots on his face.

“God know what I did,” Walker allegedly told officers at the scene. “I’m bad for doing what I did, I did it to my baby. He’s gone.”

A Pierce County medical examiner said the autopsy showed that the boy had suffered head injuries, but that they were not fatal and the likely cause of death was smothering.

    15 years are not nearly enough for this sweet innocent child (or any child for that matter.) Hang her and the sooner the better. Prison is too good for her.

    I'm tired of the individuals who need to take medication for psychosis have the right to not take their medication and are allowed to commit murder with little or no consequence.

    Another example of our 'wonderful' so-called 'justice' system. She'll be out in 6-8 years, mark my words.
