WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) - A northeastern Pennsylvania mother who pleaded guilty to charges in what authorities called a cover-up of a shooting death involving her teenage son has been denied early parole.

Thirty-two-year-old Angelina Deabreu of East Stroudsburg was sentenced to six to 12 months last year after pleading guilty in Luzerne County to charges of evidence tampering and hindering prosecution.

Authorities said she hid the gun after the April 2012 shooting death of 14-year-old Tyler Winstead, then lied to investigators and deleted cellphone pictures of her son handling the weapon.

Deabreu pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charges during a jury trial in May.

Judge David Lupas on Tuesday denied her request for early parole but said she could be released on house arrest in April if her prison record is unblemished.
