Kristen Lee Herold, 43, of Wexford entered the guilty plea.
Herold’s attorney, Al Lindsay, requested immediate sentencing Tuesday, but Doerr rejected that request, saying a pre-sentence investigation was needed. He set Herold’s sentencing for May 3.
A plea agreement with prosecutors calls for a sentence of 18 to 60 months in state prison for helping cover up the death of a raped, beaten and drugged four year old child.
Herold was charged by police a day after Bentley’s death, after officers found her and Lambing hiding in a Walker Avenue house.
Investigators say Herold provided false information in an attempt to hide Lambing from police, and also failed to get medical help for Bentley on the morning of the assault.
Police say Lambing on March 21, 2017, sexually assaulted the boy in a room at the Super 8 motel on Pittsburgh Road, Butler Township, leaving him with injuries that resulted in his death. After this she took the child’s lifeless body for a car ride, where the child ultimately died.
