Authorities say a woman who is both aunt and foster mother to a 3-year-old child found dead in Santa Maria has been arrested for investigation of murder.
Santa Maria Police said Friday 27-year-old Sylvia Marie Dominguez was arrested on suspicion of murder and willful infliction of injury to a child causing great bodily injury or death.
Police Lt. Dan Ast says emergency crews responded to a report that the boy -- Gilbert Dominguez -- was not breathing.
He was pronounced dead soon after rescue workers arrived. A criminal investigation was opened because of injuries on the boy's body.
Three other children in Dominguez's care were put in the custody of child welfare services.
