An illegal alien living in Texas is accused of beating his two-week-old son to death last week.
“Luis Angel Pacheco, 27, is charged with injury to a child, but that is expected to be upgraded due to the child’s death,” according to KTRK. “Pacheco is accused of causing severe injuries to his son’s skull, stomach and groin area.”
Pacheco reportedly told authorities that he had accidentally dropped his son on a concrete floor while changing his diaper. He said that he had not told his wife what happened, and waited hours – until his son’s breathing became heavy and labored – to call 911.
Authorities spoke with the child’s doctor, who said that the trauma sustained by the child was not consistent with Pacheco’s claim that he accidentally dropped his son.
The child died on Thursday, after spending several days in the hospital on life support.
Pacheco was released on a $250,000 bond, but also has an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer.
