Downing gets time served in kids' car deaths

Posted: Updated:

The Prince George mother accused in the death of her toddler son and baby daughter after leaving them in her car while she worked a full shift at her job will serve no additional jail time.

Tuesday, a Henrico judge deliberated for an hour on the case of Brittany Downing, 23, before sentencing Downing to time served on her two counts of involuntary manslaughter and one count of child neglect.

Both of Downing's children died in May of last year when Downing left them in her car outside a hotel near Virginia Center Commons.
