As part of a plea deal, the prosecutor said she recommends Santiago serve 20 years in state prison followed by 10 years of extended supervision when she’s sentenced in May.
Santiago’s 2-year-old son, Gilbert Grant II, died last April. Twenty-nine-year-old David Heiden pleaded guilty to causing the boy’s death while babysitting him and was sentenced earlier this week to life in prison.
