ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A south-central Kansas woman has pleaded guilty in the death of a toddler who drank rust remover in her home.

Two-year-old Davin Manly became fatally ill last October at the Arkansas (ar-KAN'-zuhs) City home of baby sitter Jennifer Bowman. Authorities said the rust remover was in a plastic beverage bottle.

KSNW-TV reports Bowman pleaded guilty Wednesday to involuntary manslaughter. She had been scheduled for arraignment but entered the plea instead.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 11, a little more than one year since the toddler died.
