WAUKEGAN (AP) – A suburban Chicago woman has pleaded guilty to a reckless homicide charge in the death of a 5-year-old girl.
Carly Rousso of Highland Park entered the plea on Tuesday. The 19-year-old still faces a bench trial in Lake County court on a count of aggravated driving under the influence.
Rousso is accused of driving onto a sidewalk and killing Jaclyn Santos-Sacramento after inhaling computer dust cleaner in September 2012. The girl’s mother and two infant brothers were injured but survived.
Rousso has been free on $500,000 bond. She had pleaded not guilty.
