MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) -- A woman whose 4-year-old son was struck by
a van and killed while the family was attempting to cross a busy Cobb County street faces sentencing for vehicular homicide.

Raquel Nelson is due in Cobb County Superior Court on Tuesday.
An attorney for the 30-year-old woman says she and her children
were crossing a street in April after getting off a bus, three-tenths of a mile from a crosswalk. The attorney says Nelson's daughter and son bolted from a median.

They were struck by a van, slightly injuring Nelson and her daughter but killing her son.

The driver, Jerry Guy, pleaded guilty to hit-and-run and served a six-month sentence. Nelson was convicted of vehicular homicide
and could be sentenced to up to 36 months.
