Woman's conviction in baby's death upheld by appeals court

by

STURGEON BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The conviction of a Door County woman for causing the death of her child has been upheld by a state appeals court.

Melissa Martinez was sentenced to three years in prison after leaving her eight-month-old daughter inside a running, heated SUV for hours.

According to prosecutors, Martinez had a blood alcohol level of almost three times the legal limit to drive when the baby was found.

Martinez was convicted of child neglect causing death.

On Tuesday, an appeals court confirmed the conviction.
