A woman who was accused of trying to kill her autistic daughter has pleaded guilty to first-degree child abuse.
A prosecutor says Kelli Stapleton entered the plea Tuesday.
She'd been scheduled to go on trial today on a charge of attempted murder.
Stapleton is accused of trying to kill herself and her teenage daughter last year by carbon monoxide poisoning by igniting charcoal grills inside a van in northern Michigan.
Her daughter, who was 14 at the time, has severe autism and sometimes has violent outbursts.
