Gerald Campos, interim director of the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ), said the toddler suffered several months of abuse, the medical examiner finding seven needles inserted in the abdomen. The official described the act by young mother and the child’s stepfather as “brutal”.

The director said that in the report that the child had internal bleeding and that for the pancreas to be injured, the child had to hae received a heavy blow.

Campos explained that while the main suspect in the beating, torture and abuse is the stepfather, the mother is also linked, either in the assaults or in hiding the actions of her partner.

“We‘re talking about a defenseless child, where people in charge of their care had to ensure their protection and found the opposite,” he said.

The couple were arrested Tuesday. The stepfather, identified by his last name, Icabalceta, was ordered to four months preventive detention while the investigation continues. The young mother, only 17, identified by her last name Mendoza, was ordered to two months preventive detention by the Juzgado Penal Juvenil de Los Chiles (juvenile Court).
