MIAMI -

Tuesday marks one-year since a little girl was found dead in a toxic truck on the side of Interstate 95.

Prosecutors said Nubia Barahona, 10, was killed by her foster parents.

The girl was found in the back of the truck on Feb. 14, 2011, in West Palm Beach. Her twin brother, Victor, was found in the front seat of the truck, critically burned by chemicals. He has recovered from those injuries.

Carmen and Jorge Barahona, the twins' foster parents, are charged with first-degree murder in the death of Nubia Barahona.

They have both pleaded not guilty and are being held without bond. They face the death penalty if convicted.

Currently, there are a couple of bills bearing Nubia's name moving through the Florida Legislature. If passed, they would re-tool Florida's foster care system.
