Albuquerque woman and her boyfriend accused of child abuse
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say an Albuquerque woman and her boyfriend are accused of child abuse after her baby son was hospitalized in critical condition.
According to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court, 35-year-old Florencio Mendoza called police Monday afternoon to say his girlfriend allegedly planned to hurt her 1-year-old son.
The Albuquerque Journal reports 24-year-old Dahn Liedy allegedly beat and kicked the baby and doctors had to induce a coma to treat him.
Police say they went to Leidy’s apartment and found the infant semi-conscious with bruises on his face, neck and chest and a cut on the side of his lip.
An ambulance took the baby to a hospital, where doctors say they discovered a bleeding laceration to his liver and other signs of blunt force trauma on his body.
