Three months after a judge took Curtis Witcher, 3, out of his foster parent’s custody — he had been with them for a more than 2 years — the boy’s biological mother, Timmeka Eggleton murdered him. This week, she pleaded guilty to that and other crimes in a courtroom in Ohio.

Eggleton, 31, who was indicted last year in Cuyahoga County, pleaded guilty Tuesday to murder, felonious assault and endangering children. She was deemed incompetent to stand trial by a judge last year but after undergoing court-ordered treatment she was reevaluated in November and deemed eligible to face charges. She also faced an aggravated murder charge but that count was dropped as part of her plea bargain this week.

She will be sentenced on July 22 and faces life in prison.
