JOPLIN, MO.--- Christina Haidle, 27, plead guilty to child abuse today. Haidle was originally charged with child endangerment. She and her roommate, Beth Williams, were both charged after Williams' three year old daughter was rushed to the hospital with extreme malnutrition.
The incident happened in July 2012. Court papers say the daughter weighed just 12 pounds, and had a blood sugar level of zero, a body temperature too low to register and a pulse so faint C.P.R. had to be administered. Doctors considered the condition so severe as to be life threatening. A sentencing has been scheduled for February 10, 2014.
