Dead girl’s father arrested
The father of a 2-yearold girl who died Monday was arrested and indicted for crimes unrelated to the child’s death.
A state judge indicted José de Jesús “Doe,” 39, on an arrest warrant for a January 2017 robbery.
The suspect was apprehended for the burglary of a television set reported from a residence located at Fraccionamiento Real Virreyes neighbor- hood in western Mexicali.
The owner caught and chased the suspect and his accomplices, who then allegedly assaulted the victim by punching him several times.
The suspect fled from Mexicali General Hospital, where detectives uncovered the arrest warrant.
José de Jesús is the father of Sofia Maribel, who died due to intoxication of an undetermined substance.
Authorities denied the substance was an illegal drug.
