An Onawa woman will be sentenced Friday for killing her son.

A Monona county judge found Ashley Cameron guilty of involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment in May.

She was originally charged with first degree murder.

Prosecutors say Cameron held 15-month old Markis Dahms’ head under a running faucet in the bathtub until he drowned in April 2012.

Defense attorneys argued the child had a lethal seizure.

Cameron faces up to 50 years in prison.
