TUCSON, Ariz. — Police say a woman and her boyfriend have been accused of abusing the woman’s baby boy who later died at a Tucson hospital.
Tucson police say they learned Sunday that 10-month-old Jose Valenzuela died while being treated at a hospital.
They say 25-year-old Salma Rodriguez and 22-year-old Ivan Portillo Herrera were arrested last Thursday after a doctor discovered old and new injuries on the infant that were consistent with abuse.
Police say the couple had called 911 and reported that the boy rolled off the couch onto the carpet.
Rodriguez is accused of two counts of child abuse and Herrera with one count of child abuse, but police say additional charges against the couple are pending.
It was unclear Monday if either Rodriguez or Herrera has a lawyer yet.
