Sandra Layne leaving in West Bloomfield Township, Mich., was convicted last month for second-degree murder.

Oakland County Circuit Judge Denise Langford Morris said, "Grandmothers are supposed to protect. ... Why did you keep shooting and how could you keep shooting?," Jurors declined her claim of self-defense.

While Jonathan's mother, Jennifer Hoffman said, "I wish I had seen signs of how evil she was before I left her with my son,"

Sandra Layne said, "I'm sorry for what I did. I apologize to everyone I've hurt, everyone. ... Sorry is too small a word," she added, "I don't want to die in jail or prison."

According to Layne's attorney, Jerome Sabbota planned to appeal after the hearing.
