Mother, boyfriend arrested in attack on 6-year-old
March 7, 2006
HARTFORD, Conn. --After wrongly implicating another man, a woman and her boyfriend were charged Tuesday with beating her 6-year-old daughter so badly that her lower left arm had to be amputated, city police said.
Yajaira Rodriguez, 24, and Jose Graciani, 23, were arraigned in Hartford Superior Court on six counts each of first-degree assault and assault on a mentally disabled person and one count each of risk of injury to a minor, police said. Bond was set at $750,000 for both.
Rodriguez's daughter, Natasha Santiago, was born with a rare defect that has left her mentally retarded, unable to speak and unable to walk on her own. The six assault counts were based on the number of fractures she suffered, the Journal Inquirer of Manchester reported Tuesday.
Police said Natasha was beaten in December. After the incident, police said Rodriguez lied in a sworn statement to authorities by implicating her ex-boyfriend, Jaime Hoy.
Authorities said Tuesday that they vacated the arrest warrant against Hoy, who had contacted police to say he had been deported years ago from Canada to his native Colombia and was not in Hartford when the girl was injured.
Rodriguez, a mother of four, was charged with falsely reporting an incident and other crimes in January and had been free on $10,000 bond since her arrest.
She had claimed Hoy broke into her apartment armed with a gun and refused to let her check on her children for three days..;..................
