SC Woman sentenced for leaving children with body

Posted: Updated:

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - A Loris woman has been sentenced to 20 days in jail after pleading guilty to cruelty charges for leaving her children alone in a hotel room with a dead man's body.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported that 31-year-old Belonda Renee Davis was given credit for the time she has been in jail.

Circuit Judge Steven John on Thursday also ordered Davis to pay court costs and comply with orders from the Department of Social Services.

She had been arrested in September on cruelty and illegal neglect of a child charges. The neglect charges were dropped following the guilty plea to the cruelty charge.

Police said they found the woman's 11-year-old and 13-year-old daughters in a hotel room with the body of 21-year-old Paul Tebeau of Loris.
