The mother of 11 month-old RaeLynn Martinez has been arrested for child abuse resulting in death. Her charges include:

· Child abuse resulting in death (class 3 felony)

· Accessory to a crime (class 4 felony)

· Attempt to influence a public servant (class 4 felony)

Alexa Coria was arrested on Sept. 22.

Her boyfriend, Juan Canales Hernandez, was arrested on Sept. 8 for first degree murder, child abuse resulting in death, attempt to influence a public servant and habitual child abuse after the death of the 11 month-old girl.

Fort Collins Police Services determined that Martinez sustained her injuries at an apartment on Blue Spruce Drive while Coria was away. After Coria’s revival efforts were unsuccessful, her and Hernandez drove Martinez to Poudre Valley Hospital where she was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Aurora.

Martinez died on Sept. 9, and doctors determined that the life-threatening injuries were the result of non-accidental trauma.

Hernandez and Coria are being held in Larimer County Jail.
