Eagle Nest man charged in death of 8-month-old daughter


EAGLE NEST, N.M. (KRQE) – An Eagle Nest man has been charged in his daughter’s death almost a year after it happened.

Mariano Araica-Avalos is charged with child abuse resulting in death.

In March 2016, 8-month-old Arayah Araica died. Avalos said she had fallen off the bed.

An autopsy revealed she had suffered from broken ribs, a neck hemorrhage and a fractured skull.

The Colfax County Sheriff said the investigation took so long because they had to conduct several interviews.
