Dad convicted in death of 1-month-old infant (Alburquerque, New Mexico)

Dad JOSE VASQUEZ has been convicted in the death of his 1-month-old infant. Investigators seem to think he somehow "restricted" the baby's breathing while sleeping in the same bed. Probably didn't help matters that Daddy was partaking from a lot of pharmaceuticals.

So where is this baby's mother? In the same bed? Elsewhere? Not a word here.


Father convicted in infant's death

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Bernalillo County jury has convicted a man in the death of his infant child.

Authorities say 31-year-old Jose Vasquez faces a mandatory 18-year prison sentence.

Vasquez's 1-month old child was found dead in the family bed in November 2008. Investigators learned Vasquez was undergoing prescribed methadone treatment and had recently abused other illegal drugs before going to sleep next to the infant.

It is believed Vasquez moved during the night and placed the child in a position which restricted its breathing.

He had been advised by a doctor not to sleep with the child.
