DINWIDDIE, VA (WWBT) -

A Dinwiddie woman accused of accidentally killing her newborn pleaded guilty on Wednesday to involuntary manslaughter.

Last October, authorities found Devin Small's baby dead in a toilet. Her attorney says Small did not know she was about to give birth and did not intentionally kill the infant.

Small received a three-year suspended sentence.
