Couple from New Mexico compound face child abuse charges

SANTA FE, N. M. – A sheriff in New Mexico, says that child abuse costs which can have a penalty of life in prison have been filed against the father and stepmother of a 3-year-old boy, whose body was found in a poor connection.

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe announced Friday that Siraj Ibn Wahhaj (see DAHJ’ IBN wah-HAJ’) and his wife by the Islamic faith Jany Leveille indicted for child abuse resulting in death and conspiracy to commit child abuse.

Siraj Ibn Wahhaj is the father of Abdul-ghani Wahhaj (ahb-DOOL’ GAH’-nee wah-HAJ’), whose remains were discovered in an underground tunnel on a compound near the Colorado state line.

The suspects were among the five adults and 11 children live in misery during an Aug. 3 raid on the compound.

A lawyer for Leveille says she has not seen the charges and her client maintains her innocence. An attorney for Siraj Ibn Wahhaj could not be immediately reached.
