A Clearfield County woman was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison Monday in the death of her former boyfriend's toddler. In August, a jury found 22 year old Jennifer Medzie guilty of third degree murder in the death of 2 year old Sophia Hoffman-Lauder in Clearfield County in 2013. Medzie was the live in girlfriend of the baby's father at the time. "Today we finally got justice for baby Sophia. We and the state police have been working on this case for many, many years. We've had a lot of road blocks and obstacles put in our way, so I'm very happy that we finally got justice for baby Sophia." Medzie will be taken to the State Correctional Institution at Muncy for women. Medzie's attorney said he plans to file a motion for reconsideration of the sentence and an appeal for the verdict.
