The husband of a former Wilson County pediatrician convicted of killing their four-year-old daughter has pleaded guilty for his connection to the crime.
Steven Mark pleaded guilty Tuesday to child abuse, among other charges.
His wife, Dr. Deborah Mark, was convicted of first degree murder last December for the July 2010 death of their adopted daughter, Kairissa.
Kairissa was rushed to Vanderbilt with serious injuries. She died the following day and bruises were later found all over her body.
Deborah Mark was sentenced to life in prison.
Steven Mark faces up to 32 years behind bars.
