Jail, probation deal for woman in 1957 murder

By

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin woman accused of killing her infant daughter nearly 56 years ago has reached a plea deal that calls for 45 days in jail.

A judge accepted the plea agreement Monday for 76-year-old Ruby Klokow.

Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe De Cecco (de CHECK'-oh) recommended the jail term plus 10 years probation for Klokow, citing her advanced age and health as factors.

Klokow (CLOCK'-ow) was charged with second-degree murder after her son, James Klokow Jr., came forward in 2008 with horrific stories of childhood abuse.

A criminal complaint said Ruby Klokow admitted causing the death of her 6-month-old baby, Jeaneen.
