Idaho woman guilty in connection to malnourished 11-pound daughter

CALDWELL, Idaho – A 22-year-old southwest Idaho woman has pleaded guilty to felony injury to a child after authorities reported finding her daughter severely malnourished.

Tiffany Knapp of Caldwell made the plea Monday in 3rd District Court.

Court documents say police in March performed a welfare check on the 8-month-old infant and found she only weighed 11 pounds.

The child was placed into foster care where authorities say she gained more than 4 pounds over the next 20 days.

Authorities say the child had been prescribed a special formula to help her gain weight but had been given only Kool-Aid and watered-down milk.

Knapp wasn’t arrested until September. She faces up to 10 years on prison at her sentencing scheduled for April 3.
