-A A +A

From the Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — The family that helped raise a 9-year-old Albuquerque boy who died after police say his biological mother kicked him repeatedly claims the child’s death could have been prevented.

Police found Omaree Varela unresponsive in his family’s home Friday. His mother, Synthia Varela-Casaus, 38, was arrested after telling police she got angry and kicked him. She’s facing a charge of child abuse resulting in death. It wasn’t clear if she had a lawyer yet.
