FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – The 15 year sentence was handed down to Marshall Snyder this morning in Allen Superior Court, according to the Journal Gazette. Snyder was charged with conspiring with his girlfriend, 20-year-old Sarai Rodriguez-Miranda, to kill an 11-week-old baby by putting headache medicine in the infant’s bottle. He was originally charged with aiding attempted murder, but then pleaded guilty last month to aiding attempted aggravated battery.
Rodriguez-Miranda admitted to the plot and was sentenced to 25 years in prison last May. The plot to kill the baby was in January 2017 at which they laced a bottle of breast milk with more than 2,200 milligrams of acetaminophen. It would have only took 900 milligrams to kill the infant according to a forensic toxicologist. The baby was unharmed as the plot was discovered and she wasn’t given the bottle.
The girl’s mother asked Fran Gull, Judge for the Allen Superior Court, to give Snyder the maximum sentence, despite his apology in court.
