Teenager Alexee Trevizo, who allegedly locked herself in a bathroom after learning she was pregnant and appeared at a New Mexico hospital with lower back pain, is now accused of killing her unborn boy.
In relation to the event that occurred at Artesia General Hospital on January 27, when the defendant’s infant was found unconscious in a waste bag inside a bathroom, the Artesia Police Department detained Alexee Trevizo on Thursday.
Authorities claim that an autopsy showed that the infant was a victim of a homicide brought on by a lack of oxygen. Officers from the Artesia Police Department presented the 5th Judicial District Attorney’s Office with case information on March 28, 2023. Formal charges were brought against the culprit and the victim’s mother on May 10, 2023, according to the police.
An Artesia lady was accused of murder when a baby was found in a hospital trash can.
Trevizo is accused with first-degree murder “or alternatively” intentionally abusing a kid to the point of death, as well as tampering with evidence, according to the authorities.
According to the complaint, the “above-named defendant(s) did: Kill John Doe, a human being, without lawful justification or excuse,” alleging that Trevizo “knowingly, intentionally, or negligently, and without justification, caused or permitted John Doe, a child, to be placed in a situation that endangered or might have endangered John Doe’s life or health, and the abuse resulted in John Doe’s death.”
In order to avoid being apprehended, charged, or convicted, the defendant also “destroy, change, hide, place, or fabricate physical evidence, namely [John Doe],” the lawsuit claims. A housekeeper at the hospital in January reportedly found blood and a rubbish bag that was “heavier than usual” in the restroom.
The defendant had previously visited the clinic complaining of back discomfort, and doctors there discovered she was expecting. Trevizo apparently spent a considerable period of time alone in the bathroom after giving birth before discarding the infant in a rubbish bag.
According to Trevizo, she panicked and threw the baby away because he wasn’t breathing when he was born. After months of inquiry and the findings of an autopsy on March 28, authorities assert that the baby boy was delivered alive and died as a result of being placed in the bag.
Gary C. Mitchell, the defense lawyer, described this as a “horrific case of a young person who goes for help to the right place — the place in that community she should be at.”
The lawyer questioned, “She went there for aid, and this is what happened? Documents from the Eddy County Detention Center that Law & Crime reviewed show that Trevizo was arrested on Thursday at 5:36 p.m. and has no bond. On Friday, prosecutors were expected to make their case for the suspect’s continued custody.
Another teenage mother in New Mexico was just found guilty of attempted murder for putting her newborn kid in a plastic bag and throwing him in the trash.
In one instance, the defendant admitted to officers that she was panicking and unsure of what to do after learning she was pregnant the previous day.
