    The Dundalk woman charged with child abuse that resulted in the death of her 3-year-old son - just months after the unexplained death of her infant son - avoided a potential murder prosecution by pleading guilty yesterday to the most serious abuse charge against her.

    As a result of Denise Lechner's guilty plea, Baltimore County prosecutors said yesterday that they will not seek an indictment charging the 26-year-old woman with second-degree murder.

    Prosecutors said they plan to seek the maximum sentence - 30 years in prison - for Lechner, who was regularly visited by county social workers concerned about her parenting skills before the death of her son Roy Lechner Jr. in March.

    Less serious child abuse charges and a District Court case, charging Lechner with neglecting Roy Jr. and her 6-month-old son, who died in November, were dismissed yesterday.
