Woman pleads guilty to role in 2-year-old daughter's death
BILLINGS, Mont. —
A southern Montana woman has pleaded guilty to her role in the death of her 2-year-old daughter.
The Billings Gazette reports Kevannah George, of Hardin, pleaded guilty Tuesday to criminal child endangerment stemming from the April 5, 2017, death, and prosecutors have agreed to recommend a three-year deferred sentence.
They say the child's father, Dana Redding Jr., was primarily responsible, while George knew about the abuse but didn't contact law enforcement. Medical staff at the Hardin hospital where the girl died told authorities the child suffered a massive amount of bruising on her entire body, as well as an open wound on the back of her head.
Redding was sentenced in February to 100 years in prison, with a 50-year parole restriction, for deliberate homicide. He is appealing his sentence.
