HOUSTON (1080 KRLD) - A Houston mom is facing charges of criminally negligent homicide in the death of her 3-year-old son. 

Police say Lexus Stagg was backing out of a parking spot in reverse as her three children tapped the front. When they made contact with the vehicle, Stagg shifted into drive and pulled forward.

While two of the children avoided the car, Stagg's three-year-old son was fatally hit.

Harris County DA Chief of Vehicular crimes Sean Teare says Stagg should not be allowed to speak with her remaining two children during the ongoing investigation.
