The relatives of a pregnant teen who died from heat stroke while working in a California vineyard in 2008 are joining with the United Farm Workers of America to seek jail for her employers.

The group began a two-day vigil Monday at a Stockton courthouse. Members want San Joaquin County Superior Court Judge Michael Garrigan to reject a plea deal for two defendants originally charged with involuntary manslaughter in the teen’s death. Under the plea agreement, both defendants would plead guilty to lesser, workplace-related charges.
