Odessa - The mother of a 2-year-old killed in a crash one week ago remains behind bars in the Ector County Jail.
Martina Deanda is charged with endangering a child following a crash that led to the death of her two-year-old son.
According to an arrest affidavit obtained by CBS 7, Deanda was found to have drugs in her system at the time of the crash.
Deanda has admitted to medical examiners that she should have buckled her son into his car seat correctly.
While the mother of the child from Friday's fatal crash remains in custody on a $50,000, the father is said to still be in the hospital from injuries sustained in the crash.
An arrest warrant for intoxication manslaughter has been issued for Frankie Rubio Junior, who police say was driving at a high rate of speed at the time of the crash.
