Prosecutors are asking a judge to keep a father accused of beating his 5-year-old daughter to death, locked up until trial.
Brandon Reynolds is accused of hitting the girl with a shoe repeatedly after she refused to do her homework.
First responders arrived to find the girl not breathing and with bruises all over her body at her apartment near Carlisle and Gibson.
The father does not have a criminal history in New Mexico, but prosecutors argue he remains a threat to the community if he doesn’t stay locked up. A hearing has been set for Wednesday.
