    Two people have been arrested in the case of a double stabbing on Friday night.

    Daniel H. Rowan, 125 Aragon, and Miriam Rosenblum, 134 Longview Dr., were arrested Saturday at an apartment on Longview Drive in White Rock.

    Rowan, 34, is charged with one count of aggravated battery and one count of aggravated battery against a household member.

    Rosenblum, 27, is charged with aiding and abetting a felon.

    The charges stem from a call to Los Alamos police dispatch at 11:30 p.m. Friday reporting a fight in progress and that someone had been stabbed.

    LAPD Cpl. Adam Jung arrived at 939 Iris St., and was advised by witnesses that Ian Cornelius, 24, had been stabbed multiple times.

  • Baby died of brain disorder

    Ten months after 11-day-old Grey Vigil of Los Alamos died, the Office of the Medical Investigator has released its autopsy report. The infant was born with a rare brain disorder called hydranencephaly, according to the report, which typically causes death within one year.  

    Baby Grey’s mother, Katrina Vigil, has been a suspect in her baby’s death as early police reports indicated that she hid the newborn in a closet for three days to conceal his birth on Sept. 24.

    Her attorney, John W. Day of Rothstein, Donatelli, Hughes, Dahlstrom, Schoenburg &  Bienvenu, LLP addressed the OMI’s findings in an interview this morning from his Santa Fe office.
