TACOMA — A Tacoma woman who called 911 and said she had killed her 2-year-old son pleaded guilty Wednesday to second-degree murder.

The plea was the result of an agreement with Pierce County prosecutors who had originally charged Aleesha Walker with first-degree murder.

KOMO reported the 28-year-old will be sentenced Sept. 6 in Tacoma.

Noah Walker was smothered. His mother told the dispatcher last March that voices in her head told her to hurt her child.
