Flagstaff Parents Charged In Connection With Their Baby’s Death

Flagstaff Police continue to investigate the death of a two-month-old baby back in January, however the parents of the child have been arrested in connection with the death. Police say 27-year-old Kyle Holliman was arrested back on March 29th, the mother, 27-year-old Andrea Michelle Hernandez, was arrested last Friday. Both are facing first-degree murder charges and two counts of child abuse. Officers were called to a home on January 2nd, on a report of an infant who wasn’t breathing at around 9:28 p.m. Medical personnel arrived and tried to revive the baby, but the child was pronounced dead a short time later. Holliman said they had dropped the baby, but their four-year-old immediately said they didn’t. Police believe Holliman may have been prompting the child to agree with them. Medics at the scene told police there were no signs of head trauma, but they believe the baby went into cardiac arrest. Police say an arrest didn’t happen right away because the cause of death was not immediately known.
