According to investigators, the baby was discovered deceased. In March, the cause of death was listed as a homicide according to an autopsy report. Trevizo was charged by the police on May 10 with first-degree murder, alternatively intentional abuse of a child resulting in death, and a count for tampering with evidence.
Following her release from jail, Trevizo will be able to complete the school year without any restrictions such as an ankle monitor or house arrest. She will remain free until her trial.
According to Gary C. Mitchell, an attorney for Trevizo, his client has no criminal record and should not be facing a murder charge, as reported by the Associated Press. According to him, there exist significant inconsistencies regarding the events that took place at the hospital, and he believes that this case does not fit the typical pattern of child abuse.
Representatives for Alexee Trevizo and Artesia General Hospital were contacted for comment. In recent years, New Mexico has seen a second high-profile case involving a mother and her newborn baby.
In Hobbs, New Mexico, a jury has found 19-year-old Alexis Avila guilty of throwing her newborn into an outdoor trash receptacle in January of last year.
