Tyler, TX (KETK) — The parents of the Smith County toddler who was found dead in a septic tank last year pleaded guilty to child endangerment in a Smith County courtroom on Friday.
According to Smith County District Attorney Matt Bingham, David and Sabrina Kimbley both pleaded guilty to five cases of child endangerment and will each serve four years in Smith County Jail.
The five Kimbley children were removed from the Kimbley's care following the death of two year old Jacob Kimbley in August of 2012. Their house was reportedly in very poor condition, which left the children exposed to various health hazards.
The Kimbley's were arrested and indicted on the child endangerment charges last year.
Jacob's death is still under investigation.
