Covina woman pleads not guilty to abuse charges following death of infant grandson

COVINA — A Covina woman pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of child abuse resulting in the death of her 8-month-old grandson, who was found unresponsive in a bathtub while in her care in October.
Irma Godinez, 48, was ordered back to Pomona Superior Court Dec. 19 for a preliminary hearing, court officials said.
Julian Sosa died two days after being found unconscious and not breathing in a bathtub at Godinez’s apartment Oct. 22, Covina police officials said. Godinez was watching the infant for her daughter, who was not present.
Coroner’s officials said Godinez left the baby alone in the tub to answer the phone before finding him unresponsive.
County booking records indicated Godinez was being held in lieu of $230,000 bail.
