AKRON, OH (WOIO) - A babysitter in Summit County pleaded guilty Tuesday in connection with the death of a 7-week-old infant.
50-year-old Laura Flores-Santillan pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and endangering children.
Prosecutors say Flores-Santillan was hired to babysit the child in September 2014.
The infant's mother dropped the child off at Flores-Santillan's Akron home. At noon that day, Flores-Santillan discovered the infant was unresponsive, and took the baby to a neighbor's home, asking them to call 911.
It was determined the infant had suffered a traumatic brain injury, believed to be from the child's head hitting an object while being shaken.
The baby was removed from life support four days later.
Flores-Santillan will be sentenced on September 23rd at 9 a.m.
