DECORAH, Iowa – A woman accused of hitting and starving her three-year-old daughter is pleading guilty.

Monica Flores, 28 of rural Cresco, entered a guilty plea Tuesday in Winneshiek County District Court to aggravated misdemeanor child endangerment. The criminal complaint states that Flores’ daughter was found to have “major bruising” on her neck, torso, and legs and the bruising looked to have occurred over a length of time. Authorities say the girl also appeared to be malnourished.

Fores has been sentenced to two years of probation.
