Woman pleads guilty to fatally shooting 19-month-old son

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A Lehigh County woman has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting her 19-month-old son back in October.

Holly Pallone, 27, of Slatington, told officers she was trying to unload a handgun she planned to sell when it went off and hit her 19-month-old son in the head.

On Wednesday her lawyer told the court Pallone wanted to take responsibility for the death of Anthony Pallone Jr.

Pallone said he was using several prescriptions she bought off the street at the time of the shooting.

Sentencing is set for March 20.

She could be facing 10 years in prison.
