California couple arrested for reportedly strangling, killing newborn in hospital immediately after birth

OXNARD, Calif. - An Oxnard couple was arrested Friday on suspicion of strangling and killing the woman's newborn baby boy after she had just given birth to him at a hospital, officials said.

Officers responded to a call about a suspicious injury at St. John’s Medical Center at about 7:53 a.m. and were told an infant was in serious condition and had "suspicious injuries," the Oxnard Police Department said in a news release.

During an investigation, detectives found the child's mother, Andrea Torralba, 20, and her boyfriend, David Villa, 21, had strangled the baby boy until he was unconscious, Oxnard police said.

Medical staff found the infant unresponsive and tried to treat him, but he succumbed to his injuries and died at the hospital, authorities said.

Torralba and Villa were arrested on a felony charge of assault on a child by means of force resulting in the child’s death, authorities said.

Bail for Villa was set at $5,000,000, according to county inmate records. No booking information was available for Torralba, but police said her bail was set at $1,000,000.

The case is under investigation.

    • On It

      Bingo. Children who miraculously survive abortion procedures are being left to die right now. There is something very wrong with anyone who continues to support the democrat party. In case they haven’t noticed by now, every dem votes the party line every time unless they have a lock & then allow a show vote here and there. Listen to your conscience, please!

  • stop the madness

    So if the doctor allows a child to die after abortion right up until it’s natural birth that’s ok but the parent uses their only means to kill a child after birth, that’s different? I don’t get it but that’s the demondcrats for ya.
