PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) A Clinton County, New York man will serve 1 to 3 years in prison for his role in the death of a toddler in Ausable Forks last summer.

Ellyah Elvidge

Prosecutors say Brandon Bushey pleaded guilty Friday to criminally negligent homicide in the death of 2-year-old Ellyah Elvidge. Bushey and Patricia Giddings -- the mother of the child -- used plywood to block a door and lock up her little boy. He died from injuries caused by getting his neck stuck in a notch in the plywood.

Giddings in August accepted a plea deal for manslaughter. She is set to be sentenced October 30.
