Mom pleads guilty to neglect after fire kills 1-year-old daughter

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Milwaukee mom has been ordered to stand trial on neglect charges after a fire killed her 1-year-old daughter. Quintella Owens pleaded guilty in Friday's preliminary hearing.

Prosecutors say Owens admitted to being at work and not getting a babysitter when one of her children accidentally started a fire.

The 6-year-old and 10-year-old kids escaped unharmed, but the 1-year-old was badly burned and died a day later.
