A Greenfield woman has been sentenced to a decade in prison for felony child endangerment resulting in the death of her 10-month-old son, according to the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office. Aracely Mares, 21, knew that her boyfriend, Diego Burgos, was abusing her son Camilo Miramontes, according to prosecutors. Burgos killed the infant on Sept. 5, 2011.
Prosecutors said Burgos repeatedly beat the child, who suffered injuries to his eyes, back, head and legs. The baby died of blunt force trauma to his head. Burgos was convicted in September 2012 of murdering Camilo, and is serving a sentence of 37 years to life, according to the district attorney’s office. Mares was living with Burgos until Camilo’s death and was aware of the abuse, prosecutors said. On May 29, 2013, Mares pleaded guilty to child endangerment resulting in death, and was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison, according to prosecutors.
