Priem pleads guilty to child abuse in Sylar Newton case

The woman who had hoped to adopt Sylar Newton, Christina Priem of Flagstaff, has pleaded guilty to two counts of child abuse. Two-year-old Sylar disappeared from the Beaver Creek Campground in July 2010 and his body was found in creek a mile away, two weeks later. The Yavapai County Attorney's Office says Priem could face from 10 to 32.75 years in prison for the two crimes.
