ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — An Albuquerque woman is in custody after her 8-month old daughter was discovered to have burns over much of her body.
KOAT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1byFTly) Carla Llanas remained in jail Friday without bond on child abuse charges.
Detectives were called to University of New Mexico Hospital after doctors found the girl had severe burns on her head and the left side of her stomach.
Investigators say Llanas, Llanas' boyfriend and uncle all said the baby had fallen off a bed and onto a heater. They say Llanas didn't take the girl to a hospital until five days later.
Authorities also found the boyfriend's 5-year-old son in the home.
It is not known if he was also put in protective custody.
