Cutlines Only: Mourning a child’s death in Visalia

Reyes DeJesus Lopez and Maricela Rosales mourn the death of their daughter, Leyla Cariña Lopez Rosales, 15 months, at their home in Central California’s Orosi. The toddler was critically injured when Marciela, 19, backed over her daughter in a driveway last Wednesday, the Visalia Times-Delta says today. “It was an accident,” said Rosales, clutching at her only child’s stuffed monkey.
