BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - A Bristol woman accused of forcing liquid soap down her 10-year-old son's throat has agreed to a plea deal.
Janet Marra faces up to 18 months in prison when she is sentenced Jan. 6. She pleaded guilty Friday in Bristol Superior Court to risk of injury to a child.
Authorities say 39-year-old Marra and her boyfriend forced the boy to ingest the soap in April during an argument over the child's language and attitude.
The boy, who was spitting up blood, fled to a neighbor's home. Doctors later found signs of bruising around his neck and broken blood vessels in his face.
Marra's boyfriend, 36-year-old John Mierzejewski, is serving a year in jail after pleading guilty to second-degree strangulation for manhandling the boy during the incident.
