Police: Boy had hypothermia, head injuries

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Commerce City police say a 4-year-old boy whose grandmother is charged in his death had scratches, bruises and what appeared to be cigarette burns on his body.

Gabriel Trujillo died last month at a hospital.

According to KUSA-TV in Denver (http://on9news.tv/xvcD5R), a police report says Gabriel was suffering with hypothermia and head injuries.

His grandmother Doris Becky Trujillo had been caring for him. The police report says she allegedly told investigators she put the boy outside, naked, in the cold as discipline.

She and her 48-year-old roommate, Lana Roberts, face charges of child abuse resulting in death. Trujillo also is charged with first-degree murder.

Trujillo has no previous arrests. She has an unlisted phone number and couldn't be reached for comment.
