Several days before he ran her over in a Yorktown Center parking lot in Lombard, Jose Aguirre texted his ex-girlfriend -- the mother of his son -- to tell her “My son’s going to be left alone. You are going to die this week, (expletive).”

Aguirre, 48, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of attempted murder.

The crime carries a penalty of six to 30 years in prison, but DuPage County prosecutors have agreed to recommend Aguirre be sentenced to no more than 23 years. Judge Brian Telander will decide the sentence after a presentencing investigation about Aguirre.

Aguirre’s next court date is Dec. 10.

Aguirre was driving a Ford Expedition when he ran down Yesenia Rodriguez at 7:30 a.m. Aug. 27, 2018, Assistant State’s Attorney Michael Fisher said.
