El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa says an arrest warrant is being written right now for Monique Lynch, accusing her of child abuse resulting in death.
Lynch is the girlfriend of Hanif Sims, the father of Genesis Sims, whose body was found stuffed in the crawl space of a home in Monument. The couple had moved out of the home more than a year before the body was found earlier this year.
Both Sims and Lynch were arrested in Nevada Wednesday on other warrants, and appeared in court Thursday morning.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office sent investigators to Nevada to interview the couple.
