FARMINGTON, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The mother of an 18-month-old that was killed in 2017 pleaded guilty to felony abuse of a corpse.
Maria Giron-Molina, 24, was sentenced to 10 years suspended imposition of sentence, with nearly 3 and a half years being recorded as time served.
According to a plea questionnaire, Giron-Molina had discussed changing her plea deal to guilty for three years.
In 2017, the boyfriend of Giron-Molina, Tyler Hobbs, suffocated the 18-month-old and concealed the child’s body in a plastic tub for over two weeks.
Hobbs pleaded guilty last week to first-degree murder and abuse of a corpse.
He was sentenced to 40 years in prison, with 15 years suspended.
