4. I don't know what sentence--if any--would be fair, but

finding your child with cuts and bruises, lethargic, etc. after leaving him alone for 12 hour shifts with what was basically some dude she hadn't known very long who also wasn't the boy's father...yes, she failed to protect her child and she does bear some responsibility for his death. I don't think she deserves decades in jail, as if she murdered the boy herself, but there must be some legal consequences for failing to act, failing to take him to the doctor when he was lethargic during a bath (and note she "confronted" the boyfriend about the baby's altered mental state--so she suspected him of having done something--and STILL left her baby in this guy's care for 12-plus hours two days later).
