COLORADO SPRINGS - The local parents accused in the death of a five month-old who died last August were advised from the jail of the charges filed against them.
Elizabeth Lopez, 20, is being held on $50,000 bond on a charge of felony child abuse resulting in death. Nicholas Lucero, 21, is also being held on $50,000 bond on a charge of felony child abuse.
Officers with the Colorado Springs Police Department arrested the pair on Thursday following grand jury indictments. Investigators believe the child was being laid under a shelving unit in the back of a closet to sleep and that pillows were propped up around the shelf to muffle the sounds of crying.
