A woman who pleaded guilty to reduced charges in the death of her newborn son is learning her sentence.

Griselle Suarez faces 16 to 32 years in prison for wrapping the full-term baby in blankets, putting him in a box and placing it inside a Dumpster last June.

Paramedics revived the boy and took him to a hospital, but he died three days later -- after he was removed from life support.

Doctors told police the boy would've lived if he'd received immediate medical care.

Prosecutors initially charged Suarez with felony child abuse and first-degree murder, but she pleaded guilty earlier this year to child abuse resulting in death.
