Odessa Woman Arrested in Connection to Girl's Death

ODESSA - An Odessa woman has been arrested in connection to the death of a little girl earlier this month.

Police arrested 26-year-old Starr Nicole Madrid on Friday afternoon and charged her with Criminally Negligent Homicide.

Madrid was driving a Nissan Murano in the 2600 block of Grandview in Odessa back on Thursday, November 4, when one-year-old Yanna Nevi Sanchez fell from the vehicle and then was run over by that same vehicle.

Police say Sanchez was not properly secured in a car seat. She later died in a Lubbock hospital.

Odessa PD reminds the public that any child younger than eight must be restrained in an approved child passenger seat unless the child is four feet nine inches in height.
