On February 17th, 2007, paramedics were dispatched to a residence where they found an unresponsive two-year-old child who subsequently died. Evidence of abuse led to the arrest and conviction of Melissa Lucio, the child’s mother. She was sent to death row where she remains to this day. The DA on the case has since been found to be corrupt and is himself serving 13 years in prison for accepting bribes to sway the outcomes of trials.
