DOVER, Del. (AP) — The stepfather of a 3-year-old girl whose burned remains were found on a softball field several years ago has pleaded guilty to child endangerment charges.

Court documents show that 41-year-old Brandon Haas pleaded guilty in March to one felony count and three misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child. None of the offenses carries mandatory prison time, and probation is the presumptive sentence for each. The Associated Press obtained details of the plea agreement Friday, one day after Haas’ wife, Kristie Haas, pleaded guilty to murder by abuse or neglect in the 2019 death of her daughter Emma Grace Cole.

The couple was arrested in Pennsylvania in October 2020, more than a year after the child’s body was found.
