FELLSMERE, FL (WFLX)- A local mother whose little boy died in a hot car last month has now been charged with her son's death.

Alejandra Alvarado was charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child. Deputies say when they arrived at her Fellsmere home last month, she was holding her son's body hysterically crying that she had left him in the car.

Alvarado was running errands with 1-year-old Aiden in the back and forgot he was there when she went to work. She worked at the bait shop for four to five hours before driving home where she realized her son was dead.
