Imperial Valley Press - - NEWS -

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.
