Suffolk grandmother pleads guilty to involuntary manslaughter in death of granddaughter

A Suffolk grandmother has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and other charges in the death of her granddaughter.

Kimberly Artis could face up to 22 years in prison.

Two-year-old Destiny Reddick died last summer after ingesting a prescription medication.

Police say the drug Suboxone was found in a candy dish by the girl.

Steven Bullock, Artis' boyfriend, pleaded guilty to similar charges last month.

They will both be sentenced on December 17th.
