WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The baby sitter of a Wichita toddler whose body was found in a field has been ordered to serve 18 months of probation.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/2siLhqN ) reports that Tyerria Miles was sentenced Wednesday for one count of interfering with the investigation of Jhornee Bland’s death. The 2-year-old died in May 2016 during an overnight stay at a local hotel, where she had attended a pool party.

Miles had been caring for Jhornee in the days before her death and initially told the police she had left the child with a friend. She later admitted that she moved Jhornee’s body to a field instead of reporting her death.

The coroner wasn’t able to determine the cause of death. Miles declined to speak on her own behalf in court.
