TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A woman involved in a deadly child neglect case says she takes responsibility.

Tiffany Daugherty was in Vigo County Court on Tuesday afternoon for a sentencing hearing.

Daugherty pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent and reckless homicide.

Experts say her young daughter died of starvation and pneumonia in January of 2016.
