PECOS, TX (KWES) - A Pecos mother whose son died after he was left in a hot car last August took a plea deal on Monday.
Annabelle Millan, 21, told Pecos police that after she took the child's father to work, she left Avrian Villalobos, 17 months, in the car for an hour. When she went to check on him, Villalobos was unresponsive.
Authorities say temperatures in the car reached 200 degrees.
She admitted to investigators that she was distracted by rolling marijuana while the baby was inside of the car.
The Reeves County Clerk's Office confirmed that Millan plead guilty to reckless injury to a child, which is a second degree felony.
As part of the deal, Millan will serve 10 years behind bars and pay a $1,500 fine.
