The Davis woman accused of drowning her 5-year-old daughter last year has changed her plea to not guilty by reason of insanity, according to the Yolo County District Attorney’s office.

Aquelin Talamantes, 29, appeared in Yolo Superior Court briefly Friday. She stands accused of murder in the Sept. 26 death of her daughter, Tatiana Garcia, and previously had pleaded not guilty to that crime.

She will return to court later this month on that charge.

Talamantes had been scheduled for a preliminary hearing Friday in another felony case she faces – charges that she committed battery on a correctional officer and resisted arrest. Those charges stemmed from an incident while Talamantes was in custody at the county jail. Talamantes has entered a not guilty plea in that case, according to the DA’s office. Friday’s preliminary hearing was continued, and she is expected to return to court for that case March 19.
