The District Attorney in Taos County says his office won’t be moving forward with charges against the Amalia compound suspects as planned.
Five adults were facing child abuse charges for the condition of the 11 children found living on the compound.
Two adults were facing charges for the death of a 4-year-old whose remains were found on the compound.
The charges were later dropped because prosecutors missed some important deadlines.
The DA said he would take the case to the grand jury and refile those charges, but he now says they will be holding off on that until the federal case is prosecuted.
The U.S. Attorney’s office is prosecuting the suspects on terrorism related charges after investigators found high powered weapons, ammo, and what they say is evidence they planned to carry out terror attacks.
