SALT LAKE CITY -- The woman who was allegedly behind the wheel of a car that hit a stroller and killed the toddler inside agreed to a plea deal Monday.

Kimberly Munoz has been in jail two months since she confessed in November to hitting and killing 2-year-old Gavyn Barnett in June and then running from the scene.

Last week in court, the defense team waived the primary hearing for Munoz and announced a proposed plea arrangement. With that deal, Munoz will serve three years probation, but no more jail time.

Munoz is expected to be out of jail by Tuesday.
