Tuesday morning around 6:30 County 911 got a call regarding an unresponsive infant. EMS was dispatched and 911 operators instructed Pacheco on how to administer CPR. When EMS arrived at the location in the Wittenburg Community, the male infant born only last Friday was pronounced dead.
Pacheco told investigators the child was crying and she held the infant smothering him into her chest. The baby according to reports had bruises on his nose and lips.
This morning Pachecco made an initial court appearance. She was granted Joel Harbinson of Taylorsville as her court appointed attorney. Judge Edward Hedrick IV set her next court date for June 6th. Pachecco remains in the Alexander County Detention Center under a $1,000,000 secured bond
