Illegal Alien Allegedly Beat 6-Year-Old Son to Death
An illegal alien living in Sandy, Utah, has been arrested and charged with the murder of her 6-year-old son, whom she allegedly beat to death.
“According to court documents, the 6-year-old died because of a blow to the right side of his head. It caused the child’s brain to bleed and swell. That swelling displaced his brain and killed him,” according to a Salt Lake Tribune report.
The suspect is 31-year-old Reyna Elizabeth Flores-Rosales, who was originally booked for child abuse before her son died of his injuries several days after her arrest. Police then upped her charges.
The child had previously sustained several other injuries, according to medics who cited scars, bruises and even open wounds all over the child’s body.
“Investigators have said Flores-Rosales was previously reported to the Department of Child and Family Services because of suspected abuse,” the report said.
Despite the fact that she is an illegal alien from Honduras, no action was taken to remove her from the United States. She has now been placed on an immigration hold.
“Flores-Rosales has been in jail since Feb. 26 and has not been granted bail,” the report said. “She has been charged with aggravated murder and aggravated sexual abuse of a child, first-degree felonies. She is also facing two second-degree felony charges of child abuse.”
