Earlier this month a Uintah County Sheriff deputy was called to the home of Robbie Trujillo on a report of domestic dispute. According to the deputy Trujillo had pushed his wife while arguing with her. During the investigation the officer noticed that one of the children in the home had some dried blood inside his ear, upon which he questioned the boy about what had happened. Trujillo explained that the boy had fallen off the curb. The boy was subsequently taken to the hospital where he disclosed that his father had kicked him in the head, doctors found that the boy had multiple skull fractures. The boy was eventually flown to Primary Children’s Medical Center, where he was treated and later released. Trujillo is being charged with child abuse along with some other charges.
