A Lexington woman is scheduled to be sentenced Friday morning for her role in the death of a 2-year-old girl she was baby-sitting.

Robin Waddy, 24, pleaded guilty on July 22 to second-degree manslaughter in connection with the death of Doni'Sha Lewis, who was injured on April 19, 2010 and died the next day at the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

Witnesses originally said Doni'Sha had been hurt in a bathtub while staying with Waddy at an apartment in the 1800 block of McCullough Drive.

The indictment issued Dec. 20 said Waddy "inflicted blunt-force injury to the head and body" of the little girl.

The Fayette County Commonwealth's Attorney has recommended a sentence of 71/2 years, court records show. The maximum penalty is 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Sentencing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Friday in Fayette Circuit Court.
