Prosecutor: Plea deal with mother in 1957 slaying


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A plea agreement has been reached in the case of a 76-year-old Wisconsin woman accused of killing her baby more than a half-century ago.

Ruby Klokow is charged with second-degree murder in the 1957 death of her daughter, Jeaneen. Her trial was set to begin Monday.

Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe DeCecco announced the plea agreement Thursday. He said he couldn't provide details ahead of a plea hearing Monday.

Klokow was charged after her adult son came forward in 2008 with stories of childhood abuse.

Her attorney didn't immediately return a call and email Thursday. Her sister, Judy Post, says she is relieved there won't be a trial.
