Man agrees to plea deal in murder of toddler, stabbing his mom

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Madison area man struck a plea deal, just before he was about to stand trial for killing his two-year-old son with an SUV and stabbing his mother.

32-year-old Jesus Castillo-Dimas pleaded no contest Monday to Dane County charges of reckless homicide and attempted homicide. Another count of reckless homicide was reduced to reckless endangerment, and Castillo-Dimas pleaded no contest to that.

The plea deal let him escape a possible life prison sentence. The defense has agreed to at least a 30-year prison term, and prosecutors can ask for more. Castillo-Dimas will be sentenced June 12th.

Authorities said he ran over his 2-year-old son Yandel Castillo-Castillo in Fitchburg in the summer of 2012. Officials said he also tried killing the boy's mother and her boyfriend during the incident.

Prosecutors said Castillo-Dimas laughed at his ex-girlfriend and then taunted her, saying neither she nor him would have custody of the child.
