A Cranbrook woman charged in connection with the May 2011 drowning death of a toddler will be sentenced next month in Cranbrook Provincial Court.

Tammy Bouvette has been charged with second-degree murder over the incident.

In Cranbrook Supreme Court on Monday, April 8, Bouvette’s counsel Jesse Gelber told Justice Lauri Ann Fenlon that a plea bargain has been reached.

The case will return to Cranbrook Provincial Court for disposition on May 13.

Bouvette is currently in custody at Alouette Correctional Centre for Women in Maple Ridge.

She was first charged in October 2011 in connection with the May 29, 2011 death of a 19-month-old Cranbrook girl. Bouvette was allegedly babysitting the child at the time of the drowning.
