A Haltom City woman accused of delaying treatment for her 2-year-old grandson after he was burned by scalding water last year has pleaded guilty to murder in the boy’s death.
Patricia Annette Flores, 44, chose to have a jury sentence her, and the punishment phase began Tuesday, said Sam Jordan, spokeswoman for the Tarrant County district attorney’s office.
Flores pleaded guilty Monday.
Police said Patricia Flores waited six days before calling 911 last March after her grandson, Lyfe “Gabe” Flores, was burned at a home in Haltom City. When she did, on March 30, she told the call taker that the boy appeared to be going into shock and was having trouble breathing.
