Final suspect in death of Tucson infant Baby Wyllow reaches plea deal

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The final suspect in the death of Tucson infant Baby Wyllow has reached a plea deal.

Kaylie Ryan Gossett was in court Tuesday, Feb. 18 and pleaded guilty to manslaughter and child abuse.

Gossett, who was indicted on charges of murder and felony child abuse, will be sentenced Monday, April 13. She is facing up to 21 years for manslaughter. The abuse charge is probation eligible, meaning the court could sentence her to probation for 10 years to life.

Gossett was Baby Wyllow’s babysitter when the 6-month-old died from what doctors called brutal injuries. Those injuries included bruises, multiple leg fractures and a right arm that was “grossly” displaced.
