HENRICO (WRIC) - A Prince George County mother whose two children died after she allegedly left them inside a hot car while she went to work pled guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter Wednesday.

Brittney R. Downing is accused of leaving her newborn and toddler in a car for nearly eight hours while she went to work.

The son was found deceased while the daughter was taken to VCU Medical Center for treatment, where she died four days later.

Downing faces up to 25 years when she is sentenced in March.
