An Omaha teen who threw her newborn baby out of her apartment window last September has entered a plea.
 
Antonia Lopez entered a plea of admission in Douglas County Juvenile court. Lopez was originally charged as an adult with negligent child abuse resulting in death, but the case was transferred to juvenile court on February 1st when she entered the plea.  The juvenile court judge accepted the plea and ordered her to supervision by a probation officer outside the home she had shared with her mother. 
 
On a March 24 hearing a judge will decide if Lopez will face probation, be sent to a group home, or a detention facility. 
 
Lopez also faces alcohol and drug testing, psychiatric evaluation, school attendance, electronic monitoring and other rules compliance in order to successfully complete her sentence.
