WEST BEND - 25-year-old Leann Leszynski of West Bend has been convicted of felony child neglect resulting in the death of her 3-year-old daughter.

Haley Kluwe was found dead in her mother's apartment last May.

Leszynski pleaded no contest to the crime as part of a plea agreement that resulted in the dismissal of seven drug-related charges against her in the incident.

A Washington County Circuit Judge found her guilty of the neglect charge, and convicted her of the crime at a hearing Friday.  Sentencing will be on April 12.

Leszynski could be imprisoned for up to 15 years plus 10 years of state supervision for the felony offense.
