Triad Mom Pleads Guilty In 2013 Death of Her Daughter

Triad Mom Pleads Guilty In 2013 Death of Her Daughter

Wentworth, N.C.-- A day after she testified against her husband in the death of their 17-month-old daughter, Toni, Heather Gwynn pleaded guilty herself for her part in the 2013 crime. 

Friday morning, Gwynn pleaded guilty to Felony Voluntary Manslaughter and two counts of Contributing to the Delinquent, Abused or Neglected condition of a minor. She was sentenced to 58-82 months in prison. 

As a result of the plea deal, Gwynn's parental rights to her other children were terminated. She is to have no contact with them during her time in prison and can only have supervised visits when she is released, the judge said.

Heather Gwynn also took investigators to a pond where she said her husband threw out a blanket that was evidence in the case. A Guilford County Dive Team found it in October and say it was still in tact. 

Thursday, Antonio Maurice Gwynn pleaded guilty to 2nd Degree Murder and was sentenced to 124-161 months in prison. He also signed away his parental rights to his other minor children and can't have any contact with them. Once he's released he can only have supervised visits.
