SCRANTON -- A mother was sentenced in Lackawanna County Wednesday to three months house arrest and two years probation on charges related to the death of her infant.

Amanda Salvatori of Scranton and the baby's father were charged last year after falling asleep with the child in bed with them.

Drug tests revealed both had taken several prescription drugs before they fell asleep.

Salvatori pleaded guilty earlier this year to reckless endangerment.
