GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland mother has admitted to poisoning her 5-year-old son to death last year before setting her car on fire with the child inside.
Media outlets report 35-year-old Narges Shafeirad pleaded guilty on Thursday to first-degree murder in the death of Daniel Dana.
An autopsy revealed Daniel died of a Diphenhydramine overdose in June 2015 after prosecutors say his mother forced him to swallow medicine containing the common antihistamine.
Prosecutors say Shafeirad then tried to stage a wreck after putting her son's body inside the car, dousing it with gasoline and setting the vehicle on fire on the side of a Montgomery County highway. Responding police and firefighters found Shafeirad lying outside the car.
At the time, Shafeirad had been going through a divorce and custody battle with her husband.
