BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky — Two people charged in connection with the death of a toddler have entered pleas shortly before their cases went to trial.
The Bowling Green Daily News (http://bit.ly/1CswlAs ) reports that 30-year-old Tiffany D. Sampson and 40-year-old Robert R. Dishman entered plea agreements in the death of Sampson's 19-month-old son Adrian Maldonado. The Kentucky Medical Examiner's Office reported the toddler's 2012 death was caused by multiple blunt force injuries inflicted on the child's head, chest and arms.
Sampson, who pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree criminal abuse on Monday, accepted an agreement that recommends a five-year prison sentence. Dishman, entered an Alford plea of no-contest to the same charges on June 18. Prosecutors recommended a 10-year sentence for Dishman.
