ESPANOLA, N.M. (AP) — Investigators say they didn't find signs of sexual abuse on a 17-month-old Espanola girl who died from blunt force trauma to the head.
Santa Fe County officials tell KOB-TV that medical personnel may have misinterpreted some conditions on Breandra Pena's body as sexual abuse.
Nathan Montoya was arrested Tuesday and charged with child abuse resulting in death. Authorities originally believed the baby was sexually assaulted and said Montoya might face additional charges.
Authorities say the 24-year-old Montoya called 911 to report that the child wasn't breathing. Paramedics say the girl was found with serious head injuries.
Montoya is the boyfriend of Pena's godmother, who was caring for the girl.
