Woman pleads guilty in death of boy pinned against couch

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. - A Florida woman has pleaded guilty in the death of a 6-year-old boy who authorities say died after he was pinned against a couch on Christmas Eve.

The Herald Tribune (http://goo.gl/13MvQl) reported Wednesday that 22-year-old Ashley Cole of Englewood has pleaded guilty to being a principal to aggravated manslaughter of a child. She faces up to 30 years in prison

Authorities say the boy's father, who also faces charges, used his weight to pin the boy to the couch while he continued to play video games with Cole, his girlfriend. A sheriff's report says the couple eventually realized the boy wasn't breathing and called 911.

The boy's father, 31-year-old James Dearman, is scheduled to be tried in October on a charge of aggravated manslaughter of a child.
