Lee County capital murder trial begins Monday

LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - The trial for a man facing capital murder charges in the death of a little girl begins on Monday. 

The suspect in this case is Ramiro Contreras. 

Back in 2012, 4-year-old Ava Zapata died from severe injuries following a domestic assault. 

Authorities say the girl suffered injuries to her intestines, causing her organs to shut down.  

The girl was in the care of Contreras, who allegedly told investigators he accidentally kicked the little girl in her stomach while babysitting.

Contreras was the girl's mom's living-in boyfriend when this happened.
