Cancer medicine-denying mom found guilty

The Massachusetts mom who was charged of attempted murder of her 9-year-old autistic son for withholding his chemotherapy medications for Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a chest tumor, was found guilty.
The 39-year-old Kristen LaBrie was also found guilty of assault and battery for not administering home medications for at least five months and reckless endangerment of Jeremy Fraser who was battling cancer until his demise in 2009, CBS said.
She said during the trial that she followed doctors' orders during the first four phases of treatment but withheld the cancer drugs in the last phase because the drugs were making him worse.
It was earlier reported that she will spend ten years imprisonment for attempted murder.
