PULASKI, Virginia — A Pulaski woman will spend seven years in prison after pleading no contest to child neglect stemming from her infant son's death.

Media outlets report that Samantha Anna-Jane Taylor, also known as Samantha Warden, entered her plea and was sentenced Monday in Pulaski Circuit Court.

Taylor's son, Cory Cole, was found dead in woods in Draper on Jan. 30, 2014, a day after he was reported missing. The infant's father, Howard Cole, is awaiting trial on charges of capital murder and illegal disposal of a body.
