Rupert Man Gets Prison Time For Death Of Infant
A Rupert man will be spending some time in prison after the death of his three month old baby girl. 25 year old Jamie Lopez was sentenced yesterday to 3 ½ years for felony injury to a child. His daughter, Nivea Lopez, died in December of 2008 from injuries including skull fractures and healed rib fractures. Prosecutors say it appears, after a lie-detector test, that Lopez may not have actually inflicted the wounds, but may not have reported the treatment of the baby by the baby’s mother, 20 year old Oriana Martinez of Rupert. Martinez is schedule to go to trial in June, who is also faceing a charge of felony injury to a child.
