Parents of baby bitten by rats plead guilty

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Two parents have been sentenced to five years in prison after their baby suffered more than 100 rat bites.

19-year-old Erica Shryock and 18-year-old Charles Elliot were arrested last May in Magnolia.

Their child was taken to the hospital for multiple rat bites on her fingers, arms, hands and face.

Shryock and Elliot plead guilty to permitting abuse of a minor, meaning the charges of endangering the welfare of a minor were dismissed.
