Chicago woman gets prison for beating death of son in Iowa

DAVENPORT — A woman from Chicago has been sentenced to up to 50 years in prison on charges stemming from the beating death of her 5-year-old son in Iowa.

Jacqueline Rambert, 26, was sentenced Friday in Davenport, court records said. She pleaded guilty to child endangerment resulting in death and child endangerment-multiple acts. Prosecutors agreed to drop a murder charge in return for her pleas.

She was sentenced to 50 years on each count, with those sentences to be served at the same time. Under state law, Rambert must serve at least 40 percent, or 20 years, of the sentence.
