Houston parents charged with injury to a child serious bodily injury in connection with twin infants’ deaths

The parents of twin young girls who were found unresponsive last year face two felony charges in their deaths.

On October 4th, 2023, around 11:15 a.m., paramedics and officers responded to a report of two unresponsive girls discovered in a home in the 2100 block of Linden Creek Way. The babies were pronounced deceased on the scene.

According to authorities, Angelina Belinda Calderon, 21, and Fernando Vega, 21, have been charged with two charges of serious physical injury to children.

According to court filings, both girls’ autopsies revealed various injuries that could have been “days to weeks old.”

One infant suffered dehydration, contusions, bruising, a fractured femur, several rib fractures, and bilateral clavicle fractures. The second newborn had bruising, abrasions, contusions, a laceration, and various bone fractures, including the head, chest, and ribs.

According to the records, the second infant’s injuries were the result of three different incidences.

According to the records, both children died as a result of blunt force injuries, maybe caused by shaking or blunt force.

Prosecutors with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office said these two parents may have faced murder charges at one point, but the decision would be made by a grand jury.

They claim that the two are now facing the same consequences as if they had committed murder. Both suspects are jailed on a $1.5 million bond.

Calderon has a bond reduction hearing on April 26, and Vega has one on May 29.

According to FOX 26 records, on January 24, 2019, a 13-year-old died in an unintentional shooting at the same house where the infants were discovered. It is unclear who was in the house at the time of the gunshot tragedy.
