Area Woman Pleads Guilty in Daughter’s Death
A Mid-Missouri woman will be sentenced in July after pleading guilty in the January 2008 death of her daughter.
Miller County Prosecutor Matt Howard says 37-year-old Roshell Dawn Johnson pleaded guilty this week to voluntary manslaughter and abuse of a child.
The AP reports Johnson’s 20-month-old daughter, Ocean McCoy, suffered brain injuries from shaking and other head trauma before her death.
Under the terms of the plea agreement, Johnson faces a potential combined sentence of 10 to 25 years in prison.
