Tuesday, a grand jury indicted a teen who has been connected to the death of a 13-year-old boy. 

Jordan Nunez was arrested in January. 

Santa Fe County deputies say Nunez helped his father, Thomas Ferguson, bury Jeremiah Valencia’s body on the side of State Road 503, near Nambe. 

Investigators say Ferguson tortured the boy and forced him to live in a dog kennel before he died. 

Nunez is charged with child abuse, tampering with evidence, and conspiracy in the case. 

The boy’s mother is also charged.
