The Broomfield woman who in November pleaded guilty to child abuse in connection to the apparent overdose death of her 2-year-old daughter was sentenced Thursday to three years in prison.

Erin Maison-Everhart, 33, was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to negligent child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, a class 4 felony, according to the Broomfield Combined Courts clerk's office. Her daughter, Annalise McKenna Maison-Chavez, died of an apparent oxycodone overdose in February 2012.

Maison-Everhart also was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday for a separate dependency and neglect case, a civil case involving her other young child. Broomfield courts would not release more information about that case.

Maison-Everhart was supposed to be sentenced in January, but Judge Patrick Murphy postponed the sentencing so he could receive a psychological profile to help him decide how Maison-Everhart was to spend her sentence.

A request to put Maison-Everhart in community corrections was denied, citing the seriousness of the case, and a chance for intensive supervised probation also was denied.

The investigation began in February 2012, after Broomfield police and North Metro Fire Rescue District responded to a medical call on Coral Way. Maison-Everhart's 2-year-old daughter was not breathing. An autopsy showed she died from oxycodone toxicity.

Maison-Everhart took multiple medications prescribed to manage chronic illnesses, and an initial search of her home showed the medications were stored out of reach of children. However, another search a few weeks later turned up medications in a Ziploc bag on the floor of a closet, which were stored along with candy.
