DENVER — Denver Police arrested a man on Tuesday in connection to the death of a 9-month-old girl.
Gianna Rosales died on Aug. 4, 2020, according to DPD, one day after she was brought to Denver Health Medical Center.
The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner said Gianna, who would have turned 1 on Oct. 25, 2020, died from blunt force trauma.
Cain Gallardo, 21, was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree murder.
He was the boyfriend of Gianna's mother, DPD said.
The arrest resulted from the joint efforts of the Denver Police Department’s Homicide Unit and the Denver Medical Examiner’s Office.
Gallardo, then 19, was also arrested and booked on charges of attempted burglary, criminal mischief and resisting arrest in 2019 after a gun store break-in and a pursuit in Castle Rock.
