An Owasso mom accused of leaving her child alone in a hot car has pleaded guilty to child neglect.

Gretchen Markovics was arrested back in June after someone called 911 saying her vehicle wasn't running and a one-year-old child was inside sweating and crying hysterically.

The toddler was taken to the hospital and released to DHS custody but police say the child should not have been left alone.

Markovics was given a five year differed sentence.
