A 37-year-old Latino, Juan Galindo has been charged in the brutal sexual assault and abuse of a one-month old baby girl in New Mexico that led to her death, while high on meth.

The baby mother apparently left the child with Galindo while she went to a casino Thursday morning, December 29, 2011 in Albuquerque.  A 911 call came telling the operator an infant had choked while drinking her bottle.

The reality the police found was much worse.  They found the four-week old with brain bleed, vaginal tearing and a lacerated liver and it also appeared the baby had been injured in prior instances of abuse in her short four-weeks of life.

Galindo had been deported to Mexico four months ago and apparently snuck back into the U.S., exactly when is not known.  Records show Galindo had a history of drug trafficking charges.  Other charges could be forthcoming after the investigation concludes.
