Cheyenne Woman Arrested in Son’s Death
A Cheyenne woman whose 13-month-old son's body is believed to be in a northern Colorado landfill is facing felony child endangerment charges.
According to arresting documents, 26-year-old Rhiannon Ojeda was arrested around 4:20 p.m. Thursday for child endangerment with meth and child endangering. She has not made her initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court yet.
Ojeda's boyfriend, 23-year-old Logan Rogers, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and child endangering with a controlled substance in the boy's death and faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
Investigators say Rogers told them the boy died after falling off a counter at home and that Rogers wrapped him in a white comforter and put him in a dumpster near Laramie County Community College.
