EL PASO - In light of the death of an 11-month-old foster child last weekend, CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, is asking the community to get involved in a child's life who needs your help.
El Paso Police arrested 27-year-old Antonio Lopez early Wednesday morning for the murder of the 11-month-old girl in his care Saturday, only after an autopsy showed the girl had been stomped and kicked in the abdomen.
CASA Executive Director Lisa Saucedo and volunteer Lourdes Pearson sat down with NewsChannel 9 Wednesday.
