According to the police, Vega was babysitting his girlfriend’s daughter (Raiylana Vasquez) as at the time of her death. Police officers were called to the home but the baby was unresponsive with obvious signs of trauma.
A prosecution says in addition to beating the child, Vega allegedly stomped on the baby’s stomach. Raiylana was rushed to Holy Cross Hospital where she was pronounced dead within one hour of arrival. An autopsy performed the next day which revealed that the child had died of multiple injuries due to child abuse and her death was ruled a homicide.
