Brianna was a victim of child abuse. A young life taken far too soon. Born on Valentine's Day, she died at 5 months 5 days.

In 2005, Senate Bill 166, also known as the Baby Brianna Bill, was officially signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson. The bill made child abuse, which results in death, a first degree felony in New Mexico and set the mandatory minimum sentence at 30 years in prison. Prior to this it had only been 18 years.

Gravesite Details

I believe the funeral home marker has the middle name Mariah on it, but none of the photographers have photographed it close enough to be verified. I am adding the name believing the person who told me it is there is correct.
