HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A Prince George County mother charged in the deaths of her two children pleads guilty to reduced charges Wednesday.
According to the medical examiner, the children's internal temperatures reached the 103 to 104 degree range. They said the reason Jade lasted longer is that her brain wasn't fully formed and had more room to expand in her head.
Downing pled guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter and a charge of felony child neglect. She will be sentenced March 26 at 10 a.m.
