QUINCY (WGEM) — Marilyn Kramer, the mother charged in connection to an October 2018 house fire that took the life of two children, appeared in court Thursday afternoon.

Adams County State’s Attorney Gary Farha said that a plea deal was reached in which Kramer pleaded guilty to one count of endangering the life of a child. She will be sentenced to five years in prison with boot camp recommendation.

Farha said that as part of the plea deal the two counts of involuntary manslaughter and one count of endangering the life of a child were dropped.

The father of the children, William Brewer, is still scheduled for a June jury trial for two charges of endangering the life of a child and two charges of involuntary manslaughter. He has a status hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
