ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police have arrested an Albuquerque father in the death of his infant daughter. On February 13, officers were called to the University of New Mexico Hospital after 24-year-old Adam Garcia’s 5-month-old daughter Trinity was taken to the hospital with a brain bleed.
She died about a month later. According to the Albuquerque Police Department, the baby had several other injuries on her body and the autopsy results stated she died from blunt head trauma and that the manner of death was homicide.
According to court records, Garcia has been charged twice for domestic violence against the mother of his children. In both cases, police say he answered the door holding one of their children. Charges from a 2020 incident were later dismissed because the mother would not testify. In the second case a year later, the complaint was dropped after Garcia completed a diversion program.
Garcia faces a charge of child abuse resulting in death.
