MIAMI (AP) — Police say the mother of a 10-year-old girl who was found dead in a toxic truck in Florida three weeks ago has been charged with murder.

The Miami-Dade Police Department said Saturday that Carmen Barahona has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Nubia Barahona. The girl was found in the back of the truck Feb. 14 along Interstate 95 in West Palm Beach. Her brother was found in the front seat of the truck, critically burned by a chemical. Their father was lying on the ground nearby.

Barahona also faces seven counts of aggravated child abuse and seven counts of child neglect.

The children's' father, Jorge Barahona, has pleaded not guilty to attempted first-degree murder of Nubia's twin brother, Victor.
