Man Indicted in Death of Mesa Boy


An illegal immigrant has been indicted in connection with the death of his girlfriend's young son in Mesa.

Maricopa County prosecutors said Monday that 23-year-old Jorge Alberto Busso Jr. has been charged with first-degree murder and three counts of felony child abuse. He's jailed without bond.

Mesa police officers responded to a Mesa hospital on Dec. 3 after staff reported 4-year-old Ramon Alejandro Haro Colin was being treated for massive head trauma and body bruises.

Police say Busso discovered that the child had soiled himself while he was alone. They say Busso told officers that he struck the boy and his head hit a wall. However, the child wasn't taken to a hospital until his mother came home from work.

Police say the child died Dec. 5.

It's unclear if Busso has a lawyer yet.
