Mom accused of putting daughter's body in acid prison-bound
LAREDO, Texas (AP) - A South Texas woman granted probation for injuries to her infant son has been sentenced to prison after violating probation when the remains of her 2-year-old daughter were found in a bucket of acid.
Monica Yvonne Dominguez has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for violating probation after she was charged with evidence tampering and child abandonment involving her daughter's corpse.
She had been sentenced to 10 years' probation after pleading guilty in 2016 to injury to a child for injuries to her 9-month-old son. State District Jude Oscar Hale Jr. on Friday deemed the new charges violated that probation and handed down the prison sentence. Conviction on the new charges could mean up to two years in state prison on each count.
Dominguez told police her children were bathing unsupervised in their Laredo apartment in February when the girl drowned. Police found the corpse in a bucket of acid in a bedroom closet.
