COEUR d' ALENE, Idaho - The woman charged with two counts of felony injury to a child for forcing her twin granddaughters to live in extremely unsanitary conditions changed her plea in court on Monday.

Ruth Cassidy started crying as she told the judge she is now pleading guilty. Cassidy agreed to a plea deal with county prosecutors. In the deal Cassidy will plead guilty to an amended charge of one count of injury to a child that includes both girls. By pleading guilty Cassidy could face up to ten years in prison. At the end of the hearing Judge Luster released Cassidy from jail on her own recognizance. Her sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 13th and 3:00 p.m.

Cassidy's daughter Elisabeth Crossley, who was the other suspect involved in this case, reached a similar deal with prosecutors earlier this month. She has also been released from jail until her sentencing hearing.

The two twin girls remain in the care of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
