Woman who threw her 2 young kids off Portland bridge dies in prison
WILSONVILLE Ore. (KPTV) - A woman who was sentenced to life in prison for throwing her two children off the Portland Sellwood Bridge died Sunday.
The Coffee Creek Correctional Facility says 45-year-old Amanda Stott-Smith was found dead in her cell Sunday morning. They did not say how she died.
Stott-Smith was sentenced to life or at least 35 years in prison in 2010, a year after throwing her 4-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter off the bridge.
Her son died and her daughter survived.
At the time, Stott-Smith reportedly said the act was revenge against her estranged husband.
An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
