HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors have reduced the charges against a South Florida woman whose baby was found buried in a backyard.
The Broward State Attorney's Office downgraded the charges on Monday against Brittney Sierra from second-degree neglect for causing bodily harm to third-degree child neglect.
Sierra, who is pregnant, may be able to bond out of jail.
Earlier this year the medical examiner's office said her 5-month-old son died as a result of homicide. The boy's remains were discovered in January after officials realized he had been missing for 18 months.
The parents have blamed each other in statements to police.
