A woman pleaded guilty Monday to setting her newborn on fire and leaving her in the middle of a New Jersey street.

Prosecutors will look to request a 30 year sentence for Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier, after she pleaded guilty in Mount Holly to aggravated manslaughter. She had previously pleaded not guilty to a murder charge.

Dorvilier, 23, soaked her child in a flammable liquid and then set her on fire in January 2015. The baby, who suffered from 3rd degree burns over 60 percent of her body, died 2 hours after being rushed to a Philadelphia hospital.

The pregnancy was hidden from Dorvilier’s mother and sister, and the baby was found with it’s umbilical cord still intact.
