Colorado grandmother guilty in death of infant grandson

Posted: Updated:

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado grandmother was found guilty of child abuse resulting in the death of her infant grandson.
  
The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/2hHXj8N ) Sandy Archuleta was convicted by a jury Friday in Weld County. The district attorney's office says Archuleta is the second co-defendant found guilty in the death of 4-month-old Donovan Archuleta.
  
A district attorney's news release says Donovan died in August 2015 from abuse and neglect. Sandy Archuleta cared for Donovan while the boy's mother, Angelica Rey Chavez, had "other obligations."
  
Medical records indicate Donovan had chemical burns on his face, mouth and gums, a sepsis infection from pneumonia and red bruises caused by tweezers used to pinch him.
  
Chavez was sentenced in April to eight years in prison after being found guilty of negligent child abuse resulting in death.
