TUCSON, AZ - A Tucson woman has pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in the 2009 death of her infant son.
Pima County prosecutors say 23-year-old Denise Pesqueira was tried twice on a first-degree murder charge in the case.
Mistrials were declared when jurors were unable to reach a unanimous decision on the murder charge.
A jury in her second trial convicted her of reckless child abuse.
Prosecutors say Pesqueira is facing probation or up to eight years in prison on the child abuse charge and probation or up to 3.75 years on the negligent homicide charge.
She's scheduled to be sentenced April 22.
The Arizona Daily Star says Pesqueira was arrested in March 2010 after she told a friend she'd given birth in August 2009 and put the baby in the trash.
