DENVER – A Denver woman who pleaded guilty in March to second-degree murder in the killing of her nephew in 2018 when she was a teenager was sentenced this week to seven years in the Youth Offender System.
Jennie Bunsom, 18, pleaded guilty in March to second-degree murder and tampering with a deceased human body in the death of her nephew, Jordan Vong.
The Denver District Attorney’s Office said Bunsom was sentenced Wednesday to the seven years in the Youth Offender System and 30 years of a suspended sentence in the Colorado Department of Corrections.
Bunsom killed her 7-year-old cousin when she was 16 and hid his body in their Montbello home.
According to police and court documents, Bunsom killed Jordan by smothering him after he became upset when she refused to play video games with him.
