June 13, 2019

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas woman has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old son.

Cristina Guadalupe Moya entered the plea Wednesday for killing Martin Velazquez in late February.

According to court documents, the 21-year-old mother gave the child a full bottle of ibuprofen before smothering him.

Prosecutors say she then cut the boy’s wrists and tried to kill herself.

Police were called to her home to conduct a welfare check. They found the child dead and Moya with several cuts.

Moya is scheduled to be sentenced in August.
