The second woman charged with homicide by child abuse in the death of a 3-year-old girl was sentenced to 23 years in prison Friday after pleading guilty to her role in the tragedy.

Geraldine Brockington, 44, of 825 N. Dargan St., Florence, said she didn’t actively participate in pouring pans of scalding hot water down the front and back of Ty’Lashia Grant’s underwear in an effort to potty-train her. But she was her legal guardian and admitted she didn’t take her to the hospital to be treated for the severe burns until at least five days later when the child became unresponsive.
