Brooklyn Center babysitter sentenced to 21 years in infant's death

Jennifer Baldwin was found guilty of unintentional second-degree murder in June.

A Brooklyn Center babysitter was sentenced to 21 years in prison on Monday for the killing of an infant.

Jennifer Baldwin, 38, was found guilty of 2nd-degree unintentional murder on June 21. Baldwin called 911 in March while babysitting 9-month-old Colton Senogles at a Brooklyn Center home.

Senogles was found to be laboring to breathe, and died five days later in a hospital. Baldwin originally stated she had no idea what had happened to Senogles, but later admitted she had handled him aggressively.

According to a press release from Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, Baldwin’s sentence is well above the state’s sentencing guidelines.

Hennepin County District Court Judge Jamie Anderson, who handled the sentencing, cited aggravating circumstances, including Senogles’ age and inability to flee.

Hennepin County Assistant Attorney Paige Starkey went as far as to recommend 30 years in prison.

Logan Senogles, boyfriend of Caitlin, Colton Senogles’ mother, gave a victim impact statement Monday.

“She murdered my family that day,” he said. “Not just Colton but Caitlin and me. Colton just got the blunt end of it.”
