Jacqueline Rambert was sentenced Friday in Davenport. She'd pleaded guilty to two child endangerment charges.

Her co-defendant, Tre Henderson, was convicted of murder and is scheduled to be sentenced April 1 to life in prison.

Prosecutors say Ja’Shawn Bussell had 17 broken ribs and bruises from the top of his head to his ankles after Henderson beat him in April 2018.

Henderson and Rambert are from Chicago and were living in a Davenport apartment when the boy was beaten.
