2 year drowns, mom said "I'm happy that he's gone"
A mom has been charged in the drowning of her two year old son. Mary Jane Lopez, 22, faces three counts of felony child neglect, one involving death. Two other siblings were taken into protective custody by Clark County Child Protective Services.
The drowning happened Sunday, May 2nd at a home near Tropicana and Pecos. Police say Geno Leonardo Valerio wandered away and slipped into the backyard pool. It was Geno's grandmother who found him in the pool when she arrived home.
According to the arrest report Lopez, Geno's mom stated: "I'm happy he left us now and not when he got older"..."I'm happy that he's gone and don't have to suffer any more", referring to the child's diabetic condition. When asked if the death was anyone's fault, Lopez is quoted as saying: "I kinda think it's mine 'cause I wasn't watching him"..."I fell asleep and I didn't really pay attention to where he was...I shoulda went and got him before I fell asleep."
The grandfather of the child was home at them time. He said he thought all of the children were with their mother. He said the only time he saw Lopez was when she asked to borrow his cell phone, so she could call her husband. She was allegedly upset with her husband for wanting to go out with friends that night, instead of coming home to spend time with her and the kids.
Police said Lopez also admitted to leaving her children at home regularly, leaving them alone in a bedroom, without supervision.
