Upon her release, Ray will also have to register as a sex offender.

Ray was also identified as a suspect in the death of her youngest son, Drake Ray, who was 8 when he died in 2019.

The boy allegedly choked to death on popcorn, Ray said, but after the autopsy report police became more suspicious.

They quickly identified her as a suspect in the boy’s death, but she’s never been charged.
