WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - The former fiancee of a Massachusetts man convicted of fatally beating his 7-year-old son on Father’s Day in 2009 has pleaded guilty to her role in the boy’s death, but avoided prison time.

The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/1k9zB14 ) reports that Tiffany Hyman was placed on probation for two years after pleading guilty Thursday to reckless endangerment, accessory, and permitting assault and battery on a child.

The 35-year-old Hyman lived with Leslie Schuler when he beat his son, Nathaniel Turner, on June 21, 2009. The boy died at a hospital two days later. Prosecutors say she didn’t do enough to stop the abuse.

The boy lived with his grandmother in Eufaula, Alabama, but was spending the summer with his father.

Schuler pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and killed himself in prison.
