http://www.dailymail.com/policebrfs/200812190253WHEELING, W.Va. -- An Ohio County mother who officials described as "the monster under the bed'' will spend life in prison on charges that she sexually assaulted her daughter.
Thirty-one-year-old Jessica Morris was sentenced Thursday on charges of incest, sexual abuse by a parent, first-degree sexual assault and conspiracy to commit sexual assault on a minor. The consecutive sentences total more than 90 years.
Morris' boyfriend, Jack Jones, faces trial next year.
During her October trial, prosecutors said the assaults started when the girl was 3 and continued until she was 7.
Before sentencing, a letter written by the child was read to Ohio County Circuit Judge James Mazzone. The child asked Mazzone to sentence her mother to 200 years.
Morris' lawyer says he plans to appeal.
