ROBSTOWN, Texas — New details now regarding a human smuggling attempt that left six people dead last summer in Robstown.

A fourth person now has pleaded guilty.

Mayra Chaver. 32, pleaded guilty for helping an immigrant escape from police.

Three others were charged for the crime -- including 33-year-old Agustin Gutierrez-Gonzalez, 30-year-old Ivan Puga-Moreno, and 35-year-old Elena Cruz.

It was last June when authorities found a wrecked car in a ditch in Robstown.

Six people were found dead and a dozen more were taken to the hospital.

The three men involved in the crime are facing life in prison.

Chaver will also be serving some time.

Sentencing is expected on Apr. 22.
