Officials: Woman in prison for throwing her 2 young children off bridge dies
WILSONVILLE Ore. (KPTV/Gray News) - A woman in Oregon who was sentenced to life in prison for throwing her two children off of a bridge died Sunday, according to authorities.
Stott-Smith was sentenced to life or at least 35 years in prison in 2010, a year after she was accused of taking her 4-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter and throwing them off of the Sellwood Bridge in Portland.
Her son died, and her daughter survived.
At the time, Stott-Smith reportedly said the act was revenge against her estranged husband.
An autopsy will be performed to determine her cause of death.
