Perry woman takes plea deal in child's overdose death

Posted: Updated:
LIVINGSTON COUNTY (WJRT) - (06/07/14) - A 22-year-old Perry woman is taking responsibility for the overdose death of her boyfriend's 4-year-old niece.

Friday, Chelsie Marme pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and child abuse.

Police say Marme and her boyfriend, 24-year-old Jared Brock, were babysitting at a Livingston County home last August.

While in the couple's care, the 4-year-old swallowed a pill used to treat opiate addiction. Police say the pill belonged to Brock.

The pair did not take the girl to the hospital or tell anyone what happened.

The girl died later that night.

Marme is scheduled to be sentenced in mid-July.

Brock has not been offered a plea deal, but faces the same charges of involuntary manslaughter and child abuse.
