Boca mom pleads guilty in CO deaths

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email 

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - The mother of a girl who died of carbon monoxide poisoning pleaded guilty Friday morning to two counts of manslaughter.

UPDATE, FRI 2:30 PM: Loretta L. Wilson, 45, will serve five years probation, and must meet with the family of the young girl who died at her home back in May of this year.  

Wilson's daughter, Amber Sue Wilson, 11, and her friend Caitlin Brondolo, 12, died of carbon monoxide poisoning during a sleepover at Amber's house at Loggers Run in West Boca Raton. Loretta Wilson was hospitalized, but recovered.

Investigators called it a "tragic accident" - and said it might have been caused an SUV left running in the garage.

Loretta Wilson told investigators at the time that her Ford Escape wouldn't turn off after a trip to Wal-Mart. 

She awoke the next morning, a Sunday, and tried to call 911. But she was so affected by the fumes she was unable to talk to an operator.
