A Raleigh County woman has been sentenced in the death of her 2-year-old son and the beating of his twin brother.
Prosecutors say Smallwood left her twins, Graydon and Ezekiel, with her husband while she left the home to pay a drug dealer in February 2013.
Smallwood's husband, 24-year-old James Travis Green of Fairdale, pleaded guilty earlier to fatally beating Graydon and injuring Ezekiel. He is serving a life sentence with the possibility of parole.
