WASHINGTON (AP) - The parents of an infant who died on Christmas Day in Washington have pleaded guilty to criminal charges stemming from her death.

WJLA-TV reports that Trishelle Jabore and Jay Crowder, who were charged in the December 2016 death of their seven-week-old daughter Trinity, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, cruelty to children and food-stamp fraud. Crowder also pleaded guilty to a drug charge. They had been charged with first-degree murder.

Investigators say the infant girl was malnourished and suffered broken ribs. A medical examiner said she died of starvation, trauma and forced water intoxication.
