Albuquerque mother arrested, charged with child abuse

News

An Albuquerque mother has been arrested. 

Police say back in December, officers responded to a home near Wyoming and Copper after reports a child fell off a dresser. 

The 2-year-old girl was taken to the hospital in critical condition with a brain bleed and several bruises all over her body. 

Police say the girl’s mother, 23-year-old Daniela Jimenez, gave them conflicting accounts of what happened and said she slapped the girl trying to revive her. 

Jimenez is charged with child abuse.
