Mother Pleads Guilty To Aggregated Murder Of Toddler. See What She Did

Micheal Chukwuebuka, Reporting

A mother pleaded guilty Thursday to the aggravated murder of the toddler she left alone for more than a week while she went on vacation.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley, in a Thursday release, said, Kristel Candelario, 32, from Cleveland, left her 16-month-old daughter, Jailyn Candelario, alone and unattended at her home on June 6, 2023.

Stonix News learnt she didn’t return home until June 16, 2023.

When she returned, Candelario found Jailyn unresponsive and called police.

Police found Jailyn in a filthy playpen, and the girl was pronounced dead, officials said.

According to police, she had been extremely dehydrated.

Investigators determined that Candelario left her daughter alone while she vacationed in Detroit and in Puerto Rico.

Candelario pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated murder and one count of endangering children in the case. She is set to be sentenced later in March.

“This case is one of those truly unimaginable cases that will stick with me for many years to come.

“It is our job to represent the victims, and today we spoke on behalf of 16-month-old Jailyn — who is no longer with us — due to the selfish decisions her mother made.

“This conviction today, is the first step toward justice for Jailyn,” O’Malley said in a statement.
