JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

The sentencing hearing for 24-year-old Stephanie Schoonover on Thursday was continued again and will resume July 28.

Thursday was the fourth day of the sentencing hearing for Schoonover, who has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the the death of her nearly 3-month-old son, Logan, in September.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said Schoonover shook Logan and hit his head on a crib at their Oceanway home, and he died two days later from blunt-force trauma.

Schoonover's sentencing hearing began early this month. The state is asking for 45 years in prison.
