ORLANDO, Fla. — The state is set to ask a judge to proceed with the sentencing for an Orlando woman accused of leaving a 4-year-old boy to die in a hot car.
Investigators said Mariah Butler left her boyfriend’s son, Logan Starling, in a hot SUV in the parking lot of the Elite Preparatory Academy in October 2018.
Last year, prosecutors and the Butler’s attorney agreed to a plea deal, which would have meant probation only.
A judge accepted it at first, but then rejected it.
The process was then put on hold because of the pandemic.
The woman is scheduled to be sentenced at 9 a.m.
