CA - Amy Chavoya charged w torture/murder of Maria Flores, 5 & abuse of 4 children
Court documents reveal 42-year-old Amy Chavoya is also accused of abusing four other children.
Sheriff's deputies arrested her last month after a yearlong investigation. The documents describe horrific acts against the little girl who died and other children who were in the suspect's care. Prosecutors claim that abuse went on for several years.
she began abusing Mariah Flores back in 2011 by beating the little girl, depriving her of food, forcing her to take scalding hot showers and using a stun gun. Then on Oct. 10, 2014, Chavoya is accused of murdering her daughter in a way that involved torture.

Court documents also claim Chavoya abused four other children over the past four years, including a boy who was stabbed and forced to eat dishwasher soap pods. According to the suspect's Instagram page, she adopted at least three of the children after being their foster parent. The page is filled with photos of them smiling on family trips and posts in memory of Mariah.

This old blog shows them in the process of becoming foster parents. I can't quite follow, but it seems she is saying they are doing it for the money??

Chavoya remains in jail. Her next court date is scheduled for Dec. 30, but a trial is still a long way away, Linn said.
Linn said he may ask a federal grand jury to investigate local agencies that “should have kept this little girl from being tortured and murdered.” He declined to state exactly which agencies were to blame.
A criminal complaint will soon be filed in Madera County against a San Joaquin County sheriff’s deputy whose wife has been charged with murder and torture in the death of their 12-year-old adopted daughter, authorities said.
Deputy Gerardo Flores, an 11-year veteran of the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, has been placed on administrative leave, said Deputy Les Garcia, a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office. Flores could face further administrative action if he is charged with a crime, Garcia said...
The Madera County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday that Flores is the subject of an ongoing investigation and that a complaint against him will be filed in the near future. John Bell, a spokesman for the District Attorney’s Office, could not say what charges Flores will face, but they might include failure to report child abuse, he said. Under the California Child Abuse Neglecting Reporting Law, peace officers and foster parents are legally mandated to report cases of suspected child abuse.
