An Arizona lady was found guilty this week for second-degree murder and child abuse in connection with the deaths of her own two children who were found dead in a car while being strapped into their car seats. Brittany Velasquez, accepted a plea agreement with detective just a prior month before her mid-December trial.
Brittany Velasquez’s sentence for her guilt is set to be sentenced on 10th February 2020.
Pinal Deputy County Attorney Shawn Jensvold says in an interview that “She agreed to a designate term of 20 years flat followed by lifetime probation.” Adding up that “She won’t be eligible for early release in this case at all.”
Brittany son’s who was just 2 years old and her 10-month-old daughter were found dead on 26th March 2018, in a car outside their Arizona, Superior, home. The coroner’s office ruled that the children died from exposure.
Velasquez had been inspected by the Arizona Department of Child Safety twice for alleged carelessness, and local cops visited the house multiple times over the time of the years, sometimes after calls from a concerned relative, as reported by ACB15.
On 1st January 2018, a relative of Velasquez’s called police alleging she had stolen a fur coat, according to records of the police which was obtained by USA Today. While speaking to police, the relative alleged that Velasquez kept abandon for days at a time and leaving her kids with her family members.
The case was finally closed after local authorities visited the children’s grandmamma’s home and don’t found any of the evidence of children being harmed.
