    Gobble Sentenced To Death
    Judge in murder case says crime wasn't acceptable.


    The mother who beat her six-month old boy to death has been sentenced to die by lethal injection.

    Tierra Gobble was back in court Tuesday to hear Judge Lawson Little's sentence.

    He said her crime wasn't acceptable in this community and sentenced her to die.

    She nodded when the sentence was handed down and then cried after the hearing was over.

    Judge Little will set an execution date sometime soon.

    Alabama appeals court upholds death sentence for mother in beating death of her son

    In Montgomery, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the death sentence of a woman convicted of the beating death of her 4-month-old son.

    The appellate court Friday affirmed the death sentence of 27-year-old Tierra Capri Gobble for the 2004 death of her son, Phoenix Jordan "Cody" Parrish, in Houston County.

    The appellate court had previously upheld Gobble's conviction. But the case was sent back to the trial court asking it to detail the arguments why Gobble should receive a death sentence.

    Gobble's attorneys objected to the reasons given by the Houston County Court and asked the Court of Criminal Appeals to reconsider.

    The appellate court ruled that it reviewed the reasons and found Gobble received the appropriate sentence.
