TOOELE, Utah (AP) — A Utah woman whose 2-year-old son died after police say she inadvertently poured her methadone from a Gatorade bottle into his sippy cup will serve up to 15 years in prison.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Judge Robert Adkins said Tuesday in a Tooele courtroom that he disagreed with prosecutors who said the 33-year-old Jill Goff shouldn't serve prison time.

Goff pleaded guilty in June to a child abuse homicide charge in the death of Aiden Goff, who was found dead Feb. 1 after drinking a pink liquid.

Court documents say Goff realized she had served her son the wrong drink when her 8-year-old son tried it and said it tasted like medicine.

She told police she didn't call 911 or poison control right away because she was scared.
