A Brownsville mother behind bars may not be able to attend her 4 year-old daughters funeral.
Police arrested and charged Olga Salazar with child abandonment and endangerment for the death of her 4 year-old daughter, Felicitas Cordova. Investigators say the 4 year-old girl died on Sunday after being left inside a car at a flea market while her mother worked inside. Police believe she spent hours in the car with temperatures pushing over 100 degrees. Investigators say Salazar's family operated at least four booths at the 77 Flea Market.
Even if Salazar posts bond, she will be turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol for deportation because she's an illegal immigrant.
