HOPEWELL, Va. -- A Hopewell mother has been convicted of murdering her 13-year-old son by starving him.
Amy FaJohn pleaded no contest in court today to second-degree murder, which was reduced from first-degree.
A felony child neglect charge was withdrawn as part of a plea deal.
FaJohn's son, who had special needs, was found dead inside his 8th avenue home back in September.
