A mom is serving time for forcing her 14-year-old daughter to become her surrogate mother, after she was told she could no longer adopt more children.

Veronica Herrera didn't want to lose custody of her other kids, so when she realized her 2-year-old daughter, Nakita, had died after hitting her head on a heater, she did the unthinkable.

She had her other children put garbage in the barrel to make sure the fire kept going for at least two days. Herrera claims her kids had no idea their sister's body was inside the barrel, although she admits her 9-year-old son "is a smart kid and might have known."
Herrera, 29, has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, failure to report a death, destroying evidence and three counts of injury to a child. She's scheduled to be sentenced on July 25 and could face up to 40 years in prison.Continue Reading >
