Los Lunas, NM – Valencia County lawmakers today responded to tragic news of the murder of a 1-month old child. According to the Valencia County News-Bulletin, the mother has been charged with an open count of murder. The Valencia County Sheriff told the newspaper that deputies and CYFD had responded to a call to the home the week prior to the tragedy. It is unclear why the initial call to the home, in which the mother expressed concerns of being “overwhelmed and did not want to hurt her children,” did not result in CYFD removing the children from the home.
