Ciara Craig guilty of manslaughter

The woman accused of leaving her newborn baby to die in Lake Pontchartrain pleaded guilty to manslaughter Monday.

Ciara Craig cut the plea deal while waiting to be tried for murder.

She’ll receive a 12-year prison sentence.

Previously a judge overturned a murder conviction for Craig.

The judge ruled it was unclear if the baby was stillborn or alive when placed in the lake.
