SUMMARY:Defendants are two Texas brothers who were responsible for the death of a 21-month child. The child was brought into the US by her Mexican mother, Isela Marquez Campos, when she illegally entered the US to work as a domestic servant. The mother and the child moved to live with the Lozoya family, a filthy trailer home in the Hueco Village area of Hudspeth County. Defendants Octavio Lazoya and another family member abused the child by forcing it to stand prolonged hours, putting duct tape on her mouth so that she would not cry and putting her underwear in her mouth as punishment for urinating on herself, among other inhumane treatments. A few months after the abuse began, in December 1999, the child collapsed and stopped breathing. Defendants refused the mother's pleas to fetch the child to get medical care. The baby died and Defendant Joe Lozoya then burned the baby's body. FBI agents rescued the mother from the trailer home in June 2000, acting on a tip.
