Second adult charged in death of boy, 4
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – A second woman is facing charges in the alleged murder of four-year-old Gabriel Trujillo last month.
Lana Roberts, 48, faces a charge of felony child abuse resulting in death. She surrendered to authorities in Weld County Friday evening.
Her mug shot was not immediately available.
Doris Becky Trujillo, the boy’s grandmother, remains in custody on charges of first degree murder and child abuse resulting in death. Authorities responded to her home in the 6400 block of Siegal Court in Commerce City on Feb. 14 after getting a report that Gabriel had fallen.
A state investigation is now under way after family members claimed they had reached out to social workers numerous times before the toddler’s death.
Prosecutors say Lana Roberts was living at Trujillo’s home.
