MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Madison woman will spend 13 years in prison for killing her three-year-old son, because he ate candy-coated gum after she told him not to.

24-year-old Maria Castillo-Dominguez was convicted in Dane County of first-degree reckless homicide in the death of Luis Angel in 2011.

She claimed that her boyfriend caused the death, but he was never charged.

Castillo-Dominguez told police that she threw her son against a wall in her apartment, after he disobeyed her and ate some Chiclets. She also admitted hitting Luis in the face, after she ordered him to get undressed to take a bath.

Police said the boy vomited after the bath, and his father took him to a Madison hospital where he died.

She also faces a charge of battery by prisoners, filed in January. That case is still pending, with a trial date set for July 23rd.
