— A Raleigh mother only spent five months in jail for the beating death of her three-month-old baby.

Susan Gallardo pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter.

In August, Gallardo told police she was frustrated when she threw her baby Alexis across a room.

Alexis died of a skull fracture.

Gallardo received a suspended sentence and will have to undergo counseling.
