Delaware Co. mom pleads guilty in toddler hot-car death

A woman who said she was intoxicated and asleep when her 2-year-old son climbed into a car pleaded guilty to a charge related to his death.

Britni Wihebrink, 30, of Daleville pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent resulting in death. She appeared Wednesday in Delaware County court, the Star Press reported.

Police said Jaxon Stults died while in a hot car outside Wihebrink’s apartment building in September 2018. The boy apparently had left the apartment and entered the car.

Wihebrink will get her sentence on July 1.
