Houston Parents Charged in Connection with Infant Twins' Death Following Autopsy ReportSource: Houston Police Department

Two Houston parents are behind bars, facing serious charges in connection to the tragic deaths of their twin infant daughters. Angelina Belinda Calderon and Fernando Vega, both 21, were slammed with two counts each of injury to a child-serious bodily injury following the discovery of the deceased infants at their residence last October. According to a statement obtained by the Houston City News, the unfortunate events took place at 2107 Linden Creek Way, where the twins, aged just one and a half months, were found unresponsive and ultimately declared dead at the scene.

The charges were filed after an autopsy by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences revealed the infants had suffered blunt force trauma. In the wake of the report, HPD Homicide Division Sergeant A. Lopez, and Detective N. Sharp spearheaded an investigation that pinned Calderon and Vega as prime suspects. Their apprehension on April 19 was executed without a hitch by the HPD Eastside Patrol Division Crime Suppression Team.

This ghastly incident has sent shockwaves through the community, prompting a swift response from the Houston Police Department and a collaborative effort with the Houston Fire Department paramedics. Calderon and Vega, now detained, must face the grim reality of the legal repercussions stemming from the deaths of their children. The 351st State District Court will be the stage where this harrowing case unfolds.
