The Rome mother charged with criminally negligent homicide in the death of her baby rejected a plea offer in Oneida County Court Thursday.
Brooke Renzi, and the child's father, Derek Dyer, have now both rejected plea deals, opting, instead, to go to trial.
They're accused of failing to check on their 6-month-old daughter for more than 12 hours.
Thursday in court, the judge told Renzi if she pleaded guilty, he'd have capped her sentencing at 1 to 3 years in state prison. Capped, meaning, he might have sentenced her to less. Her maximum exposure, if found guilty at trial, is 1 1/3 to 4 years in state prison.
Renzi isn't in custody; she's free on bail. Her next court date is June 20, at which time her attorney will file motions, or make certain standard requests of the court.
