Prosecutors in Orange County have charged a Garden Grove mother with letting her baby boy suffocate in a pile of clothing after a drunken Halloween party.

The district attorney said Corrina Atuatasi, 27, took her son, Aiden, to a neighbor's apartment and drank for hours.

When she returned home the next morning, the baby was found dead, face down in a pile of clothing.

She faces up to 12 years in prison if convicted.
