LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Orlando Dion King has decided to plead guilty to manslaughter instead of going to trial on charge of first degree murder for killing his girlfriend's 5-month-old baby daughter in May 2007. 

King admits he was high on crack and PCP when it happened. 

He says his girlfriend had left baby with him and that baby was laying on bed with him and the baby threw up and he jumped up and the baby flew off the bed. 

Judge Wilford Carter sentenced him to 16.5 years in state prison with credit for time served.

Yesterday his girlfriend, Yowanda Ceasor, pleaded guilty to 2nd degree cruelty to juvenile.
