STURGEON BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Door County woman is scheduled to enter pleas on January 19th to charges involving the death of her eight-month-old daughter.

33-year-old Melissa Martinez of Brussels is charged with homicide by drunk driving, and fatal child neglect.

Authorities said she left her daughter Elena in an SUV that was idling for several hours on October 19th. She later died from hypothermia.

Martinez has been getting treatment the last few weeks at an inpatient rehab facility, and she's being released to a halfway house this week.

A judge modified Martinez's bond to let her stay at the halfway house -- but she cannot be released for an overnight stay anywhere else.
