Two fired day care workers accused of instigating scuffles among the children as part of what New Jersey prosecutors called a "Fight Club'' have pleaded guilty to child abuse charges.
Authorities say 23-year-old Erica Kenny and 29-year-old Chanese White last month changed their pleas to guilty under a plea agreement.
Prosecutors and police say Kenny and White instigated the "Fight Club'' among children ages 4 to 6 at the Lightbridge Academy in Cranford in August 2015. Authorities also say Kenny recorded video of the fights and shared the clips with several friends on social media.
