In this case, dad REYANALDO D. HOGUIN is going on trial for the death of his 4-month-old son. After being bonded out of jail, he proceeded to stalk the mother, steal her wallet and other personal possesions, and commit battery against an unidentified family member. NOW he is finally being held without bond.
The courts need to stop giving bail to men who kill family members. They are very likely to commit more violent crimes.
Man facing infant death charges back in jail

LAS CRUCES - Doña Ana County Sheriff's investigators on Sunday arrested a Tortugas man awaiting trial in the death of an infant last year.
After bonding out of jail Saturday night, Reynaldo D. Holguin, 38, of the 500 block of Juan Diego Avenue, was arrested the following morning and now faces charges including aggravated stalking and battery against a household member.
After Holguin's mother posted his bond, the suspect went immediately to his fiancee's workplace, reportedly in violation of his conditions of release, according to sheriff's investigators.
Holguin allegedly took a necklace and bracelet from her, as well as her wallet.
A sheriff's deputy located Holguin at his mother's residence about 7 a.m. Sunday and later charged him with aggravated stalking, a fourth-degree felony, battery against a household member and three counts of larceny under $250, a petty misdemeanor.
Holguin is being held without bond.
Holguin was charged last year with intentional child abuse resulting in the August 2009 death of 4-month-old Isaiah Lawrence Jimenez.
According to court documents, Holguin's then 5-year-old daughter told police her father had tossed the baby in the air, catching him by the legs, and held him face down on a pillow with his arms on the baby's back.
A CT scan at Memorial Medical Center indicated swelling of the brain, "consistent with a brain injury either accidental or intentional," according to court documents.
Bruises were also found on the baby's right and left inner biceps area, documents stated.
Holguin is scheduled to stand trial for this incident in July.
A conviction on Holguin's charge is punishable by life in prison.
