Man, woman facing charges in connection with baby's death
A man and a woman are facing charges in connection with the death of a baby earlier this week.
On Monday, Houston police say officers responded to a call at 8125 Mills Road in northwest Harris County and found that a 5-month-old baby had been transported to Willowbrook Memorial Hospital. After investigators say preliminary findings revealed life-threatening injuries, the baby was transported to Texas Children's Hospital where she died the next day.
Judy Marie Cedillo and Leonardo H. Pereira are charged with injury to a child-serious bodily injury. Both are accused in the death of the baby, Alyssa Cedillo. Investigators say she suffered multiple fractures, bruising and head trauma.
Pereira, 27, and Cedillo, 20, were questioned by investigators on Wednesday and police say they admitted to their involvement in the baby's death. They were taken into custody without incident.
