CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin judge has rejected a plea deal that would've sent a woman to jail for six months for her ninth drunken-driving offense.
The decision means Lisa M. Badciong will be tried on charges including driving while intoxicated ninth offense with a minor child in the vehicle.
Court documents say Badciong was found unresponsive in her running vehicle on June 2 in a Burger King drive-thru in Lake Hallie. Police say two infants were in the back seat and a half-bottle of vodka was in the front passenger seat.
 Police say her blood-alcohol level was 0.32.
Her attorney says Badciong was having trouble coping with her son's suicide. Prosecutors didn't want a long prison sentence, but the judge says treatment Badciong received for three such offenses in 2008 didn't work.
