Of course, while that might seem like an improvement, in actuality the story became even more disturbing and depressing. While originally it was believed the young girl was impregnated by her 17-year-old boyfriend, ABC News now reports that authorities believe the girl was impregnated by her 44-year-old stepfather.
According to ABC News:
The girl, identified as Dafne, was impregnated by her 44-year-old stepfather, according to Lino Gonzalez Corona, a spokesman for the Jalisco State Prosecutor's Office. The stepfather is under arrest after admitting to having his first sexual encounter with Dafne in April 2012 and a second in June.
Dafne's mother was unaware of the sexual relationship, according to Corona. She thought the baby's father was a 17-year-old boy whom her daughter had met at a local market. She learned of the pregnancy in November 2012, two months before Dafne delivered a healthy baby girl by C-section Jan. 27, 2013.
And also according to ABC News:
Doctor Raymundo Serrano, chief of gynecology at Zoquipan Hospital, and his team decided to insert a contraceptive implant to avoid another pregnancy. He described the implant as a small, flexible rod placed just under the skin in the upper arm that releases progestogen and works for up to three years.
