Brookfield Woman Sentence To 30 Years On Abuse/Neglect and Manslaughter Charge

A Brookfield woman will spend at least 25.5 years in prison.  In late July, Nancy Royal of Brookfield was found guilty of Abuse/Neglect of a Child Resulting in Death, Involuntary Manslaughter in the First Degree, Abuse of a Child, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child in the First Degree, in a Livingston County Jury Trial.

Wednesday, Royal was sentenced to a total of 30 years in the Department of Corrections. Missouri law defines Abuse/Neglect of a Child Resulting in Death as a dangerous felony, which means Royal will serve 25.5 years before being eligible for parole.
