THE BRONX - A judge today sentenced Kim Crawford to two to six years in prison for killing her 5-year-old son Jamar Johnson in 2011.
The family of Johnson's father believes the sentence is not fair.
In a plea deal, which the family objected to, Crawford pleaded guilty to killing her son on a lesser charge of manslaughter in the second degree.

Court records say she repeatedly hit the boy, and he died from his injuries. Crawford reportedly told police she beat her son for breaking the television while playing Nintendo.
Before the sentence, Crawford made a tearful apology, accepting full responsibility for her actions.
"I truly love my children and never meant to do anything to hurt them," she said.
Crawford has another child, who is currently being cared for by the father's family.
The judge said that in more than 20 years on the bench, Crawford had the most heartfelt and sincere apology she's heard.
But the boy's great aunt, Ophelia Johnson, says she doesn't buy it.
Crawford has already served two years behind bars. It will be up to a parole board to see if she could soon be freed for time served.
