Jennifer Langston, 27, was ordered to carry a picture of Glenn Clark for five years as part of a plea bargain.
But when his family gave her a picture of the dead man in his coffin, Langston initially refused to comply.
The judge has now enforced the punishment, part of a trend in the United States for creative sentencing.
Other trials have also seen convicted defendants ordered to carry photographs of their victims or lay flowers on their graves.
So many lines being crossed with this one, it's not even funny.
He was killed and Annette is in an irreversible coma. Their son, born by Caesarean section, is being raised by relatives.
Judge George Hancher sentenced Langston, a single mother of two, to 30 days in jail followed by house arrest and probation.
He also stipulated that she carry a picture of her victim in her purse at all times for the next five years.
Langston's lawyer said being forced to carry a picture of the man in the coffin was not in the spirit of the plea agreement and "was cruel and morbid".
But Judge Hancher has now ruled that Langston has to carry the photo provided by Clark's mother, Rosellen Clark Moller, who remains unapologetic.
"That's where she put him - in a casket. That's just what she did for him," Mrs Moller said.
I know there's supposed to be a pendulum-swing to the nature of justice on these sorts of thing, but c'mon. That's just wrong.
Either punish them within the accords of the system (namely, with jail time-- involuntary manslaughter, hello?) or the system fails.
This isn't justice, it's depraved.
But, of course, maybe I'm wrong.
