BROWNSVILLE – A south most area mother is facing charges for the death of her 8 month old baby.
26 year old Erica Lynn Muñoz turned herself in to the Brownsville police department in reference to pending warrants.
Those warrants stemmed dorm a death investigation involving her child that occurred on Sunday, September 14th when officers responded to the 61 hundred block of Lynx Drive to a call of an unresponsive child in a car.
The child was taken to a local hospital where he later died, possibly from hyperthermia after he was left unattended in a parked vehicle with the windows rolled up for an extended period of time.
Munoz was charged with criminal negligent homicide and issued a 10 thousand dollar bond.
