TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Wood County woman has pleaded guilty to a charge of child endangering in the death of her infant son.

Police say 5-month-old Carter Steinmiller died of head trauma at Wood County Hospital on May 5, 2012. Carter's father Brian Steinmiller was initially charged with murder in the case, pleaded guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter in September as part of a plea agreement. Brian Steinmiller is set to be sentenced for the crime on November 22.

Steinmiller's wife, Rebecca Steinmiller, changed her plea on one count of child endangering from not guilty to guilty on Tuesday. Rebecca was arrested after an examination showed her son had a broken arm, which the prosecutor's office says she neglected to report for several days.

Rebecca Steinmiller will be sentenced on January 28.
