Mother of Child Killed in Foster Home Shooting Pleads Guilty

March 12, 2006 - Posted at 12:30 p.m. CST

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) _ A woman whose child was accidentally shot to

death in an Alba foster home last year has pleaded guilty to two

forgery charges.

Twenty-nine-year-old Brandie L- McLean changed her plea on two

of three felony counts. In return, prosecutors say they'll

recommend that she be allowed to serve any jail or prison time

concurrently.

She could receive up to seven years per count.

McLean's son, 8-year-old Braxton Wooden, died in the home of

Mark and Treva Gordon in June after the Gordon's 14-year-old son

shot Braxton while they were playing. Authorities took McLean's

five children in September 2004 after her 2-year-old son got out on

the roof of her home while she was sleeping.

McLean has filed suit against the Gordons and their son, who is

in juvenile custody.
