    WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) A Waterloo mother has been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for punching her 11-year-old son and striking him with an extension cord.

    The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that 30-year-old Monette Cheriee Oden was sentenced Monday in Black Hawk County District Court. Oden must serve at least three years before she is eligible for parole.

    She has until Jan. 2 to turn herself in to prison officials and begin serving her time.

    Authorities say Oden punched the 11-year-old boy in February because he'd taken her shoes. Police say she used the electrical cord to beat him on Jan. 23.
