(KSL News) A plea deal could soon be reached in the case of a woman whose 15-year-old son hit and killed a toddler with the family minivan.

The Deseret News reports prosecutors have offered a deal to Saratoga Springs resident Regina Tausinga. She is charged with negligent homicide, allowing an unlicensed driver to drive and no proof of insurance.

On Aug. 21, Cooper Mardesich, 4, was riding his bike when Tausinga's son pulled out in the minivan and hit Mardesich.

Tausinga's son pleaded no contest to negligent homicide in juvenile court in November and was sentenced to 185 hours of community service.
