York woman pleads no contest in infant's death

YORK, Pa. (AP) -- A central Pennsylvania woman has pleaded no contest to an involuntary slaughter charge stemming from the 2011 death of her infant son.

Thirty-one-year-old Heather Almoney of York was sentenced to time served and released from prison Wednesday after entering her plea in the November 2011 death of 2-month-old Eric Clapper Jr.

The York County district attorney's office said Almoney served 586 days of her five-year sentence.

Also Wednesday, prosecutors dropped a manslaughter charge against the infant's father, 34-year-old Eric Clapper Sr., saying "he is incompetent to stand trial because of his intellectual disabilities."

Authorities said the baby was born premature and died of dehydration and malnutrition.

Defense attorneys had argued neither Almoney nor Clapper had the mental capacity to take care of a premature baby.York woman pleads no contest in infant's death
