GREENVILLE, South Carolina — The owner of a Greenville County home day care where a 3-month-old girl died last year has agreed to a plea deal.

Multiple media outlets reported that Pamela Clark Wood of Taylors pleaded guilty to child neglect, violation of child day care licensing and obstruction of justice Thursday.

Circuit Judge Ned Miller sentenced Wood to 18 months of house arrest, five years of probation and 20 days of public service. Wood also must undergo random alcohol and drug testing.

Investigators said Wood was caring for 23 children in a home that was licensed for only six.

She was not charged in the death of Kellie Rynn Martin, who died from suffocation by bedding.

The baby's mother, Kathryn Martin, said Wood lied about the conditions at the day care.
