RIVIERA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The mother of the 1-year old girl, who died in 2006 after suffering a skull fracture, has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter Wednesday.

Nikki Price took a deal with prosecutors and will be serving 10 years in prison.

At the time of the accident, Price told investigators she was bathing Shatavia Mathieu in a sink when the baby fell and hit her head.

Price gets credit for the nearly four years she's already served.
