Macon woman gets life in granddaughter's death | News
A Macon woman was sentenced to life in prison Monday after she admitted causing her granddaughter's death.
Cynthia Baldwin-McCleskey today pleaded guilty to felony murder.
That's according to prosecutor Nancy Malcor.
At the time, investigators said the young girl had been beaten and her grandmother deprived her of food for up to three days at a time.
They said the autopsy found several possible causes of death, including starvation, dehydration and neglect.
Authorities said Baldwin-McCleskey was Ruth's biological grandmother, but had adopted the child.
