Crown stays charge against Calgary woman charged in five-year-old boy’s death

CALGARY — A prosecutor says the Crown has stayed a manslaughter charge against a Calgary woman in the death of a five-year-old boy.

Shane Parker says Carolina Perdomo will not face trial, but her husband, Allan Perdomo, will still be tried for manslaughter in June.

Parker says he cannot say anything further until the husband’s case concludes.

The couple were charged in the July 2015 death of Eneas Emilio Perdomo.

The boy, who was Allan Perdomo’s biological grandson, died five days after he was taken to hospital.

Police have said Eneas had swelling and bruising all over his body.

An autopsy concluded his death was the result of multiple blunt-force trauma injuries.

A stayed charge can be reactivated by the Crown within one year.
