LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –A Fletcher woman accused of killing a foster child in her care pleaded guilty to the crime.

Heather Valentine Adams pleaded guilty Monday to hitting the young child in the head and body, ultimately killing the child, on March 15, 2015.

Her husband told investigators he found the child on the floor, unconscious and not breathing. Adams’ husband rushed the child to the Elgin Fire Department and first responders tried to resuscitate the child.

The child’s 7-month-old brother was placed in DHS care. Adams and her husband were fostering the two children.

She was originally charged with first-degree murder, but it was amended to second-degree murder. Second-degree murder comes with a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and at least 85 percent must be served.

Adams will be sentenced June 16 at 9 a.m.
