It was a very intense and emotional day in court as a judge sentenced Morgan Hite.
In January the 23-year-old pleaded guilty to child abuse resulting in death and yesterday she was sentenced to 20 years behind bars for hiding her new born baby in a duffle bag in a closet at her parents home.
Cuffed and crying, Morgan Hite apologized and took responsibility for killing her newborn baby.
And although her parents say they've forgiven her and have some closure, they say they're still missing the grandson they almost had.
The raw video of the sentencing is available on our Web site.
