ELLSWORTH, Kan. (AP) - An Ellsworth woman was sentenced to two years and eight months in prison after her 13-month-old daughter ingested morphine.

Michele Suppes was sentenced Tuesday after entering an Alford plea to involuntary manslaughter in the June 2010 death of Bailiegh Kay Suppes.

Prosecutor Amy Hanley said Suppes put the morphine in her daughter’s bottle so the child would stay asleep while her boyfriend was at her home.

The Salina Journal reports that (https://bit.ly/1uAYR38 ) before her sentencing, Suppes told the court she thought Bailiegh picked up one of her mother’s pills that had dropped on the kitchen floor.
