(Salt Lake City-AP) -- One of the three people charged with kidnapping an infant from a Salt Lake City mall has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Myra Sue Izer entered a guilty plea to attempted kidnapping, a third-degree felony, which carries a potential sentence of zero to five years in prison, as part of a plea bargain.

She will be sentenced on May 19th by third District Judge Sheila McCleve.

Izer originally was charged with first-degree felony child kidnapping, which can carry a prison sentence of five years to life in prison. She entered the reduced plea March 24th.

Cassandra Jo Gonzales and Harold Danny Rutledge Junior also are charged in the crime.

The baby was recovered safely at an area Y-M-C-A.
