DELHI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (FOX19) - A mother appeared in court on Thursday months after being charged for the drowning death of her infant daughter.

Jessica Fisher, 23, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter on Thursday.

The charges stem from the bathtub drowning death of Fisher’s daughter, who was around 18 months old at the time, Delhi Township Police Lt. Joe Macaluso told FOX19 Now several months ago.

The infant drowned around 8 p.m. April 3 on Greenwell Avenue in Delhi Township, the incident report says.

A 3-year-old was also in the bathtub at the time and was not harmed, according to Macaluso.

Fisher will be back in court on Oct. 14 for sentencing.
