A Pima County grand jury has indicted Ambrosio Veranza Pavon and five others in connection with the March beating death of a Tucson toddler.
While the uncle of 20-month-old Adam Mada was arrested in June, records show five more family members have also been charged with murder for failing to help the boy.
Adam died March 12 after his uncle, Erick Henry, 23, beat him to death, authorities said previously.
On June 20, the jury indicted Pavon, Henry and four others on charges of second-degree murder, child abuse for failure to seek medical attention and endangerment.
The others named in the indictment are Maria Alvarez, Leticia Elizabeth Henderson, Leticia Henderson and Alejandra Loretta Campas, according to court records.
Leticia Henderson and Pavon are identified in court documents as Adam’s grandparents, and Maria Alvarez is Henry’s wife. All four were living in Henderson’s home near Three Points, with Henry and Alvarez’s two young children.
Leticia Elizabeth Henderson, the boy’s aunt, was Adam’s kinship provider. It is unclear how the boy’s other aunt, Alejandra Loretta Campas, is connected to his death.
All of the suspects were arraigned last month, and Campas is in jail on a $10,000 bond.
The remaining suspects were released on bonds of the same amount.
