I have to agree with Susan that people shouldn't rush to judgment on the basis of a few press reports, which may very well be inaccurate. It's obviously negligence if you leave a child in a car, but many people have immediately jumped to the conclusion that it was a deliberate action on the part of the mother. That hasn't been established in a court of law.
I don't think premeditation is ever going to be established in a court of law because she is not facing the charges of murder. She is facing negligent homicide charges which means (in my understanding) all the prosecutor has to prove is that she was negligent. So, no one is going to try and establish in a court of law that she did it deliberatly.
