SANTA FE – A man accused of killing a boy when he was locked in a dog kennel has now been indicted on more child abuse counts against the victim.
In a new grand jury indictment, Jordan Nunez, 21, is charged with seven additional counts of child abuse against 13-year-old Jeremiah Valencia, whose body was found buried in a plastic storage container off N.M. 503 near Nambé in January 2018.
Nunez is accused of killing Jeremiah in November 2017 by flipping over a dog kennel the boy was locked in. Caging Jeremiah was just one of many ways police and prosecutors say he was tortured and abused before he died.
