Appeal filed in SC High Court case


The state of South Carolina has appealed a state Supreme Court decision to overturn the conviction of a Beaufort woman.

Paris Avery was expected to get out of jail this week. Avery was sentenced for homicide by child abuse - for the death of her 15-month-old son.

Toxicology reports show he died of an overdose of his eczema medication. Avery will stay behind bars another two months before they find out what happens next.
