The parents of a baby have been arrested in Valencia accused of an alleged crime of bad treatments. The girl, a month old, was admitted a week ago at the Hospital La Fe with bruises on both sides of the face produced on different days, skull fracture and damage to one eye. He is in an induced coma in the Intensive Care Unit.
The doctors alerted the police, that on Thursday arrested the parents, of 28 years, Spanish nationality and without criminal record. After spending the night in the jail, the Court of Instruction No. 4 of Valencia, acting as guard, left them on provisional release with a restraining order regarding their daughter, the Superior Court of Justice of the Valencian Community has indicated.
The Office of the Prosecutor did not request provisional detention for the parents because it is waiting for the forensic report. If the conclusions support it, the public ministry will review the provisional classification of the facts, going from a crime of injury to another of attempted murder, which would open the door to request additional precautionary measures, such as imprisonment. The Valencian Government has assumed the guardianship of the minor.
