Here are a few courtesy photos sent in from Friday morning’s fire in El Llano near Española at the same home where 17-month-old BreAndra Peña was allegedly beat to death earlier this week.

Police are investigating the blaze and whether it is connected in any way to the death. Nathan Montoya, 24, is in custody, charged with child abuse resulting in death in connection with the case.

Prosecutors on Friday afternoon also revealed that, despite what initial reports stated, there were no signs of sexual assault on the body of BreAndra. More than a minor mistake, I would say. In an article in Saturday’s New Mexican, I try to explain why (and from what public court records) that was being reported by three area newspapers and three area television stations.
