ODESSA - Three years in the state pen is what a jury handed down to 21-year-old Noemi Acosta.

Acosta plead guilty to killing her infant child while driving drunk.

An Ector County jury deliberated for eight hours.

Acosta admitted she was drunk when she got behind the wheel with eight month old Jesus Navarette in her arms last year.

She rolled her vehicle; Jesus was thrown from the car killing him.

Acosta's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit at the time of the wreck.
