GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Latest on the arrest of a caregiver (all times local):

11:30 a.m.

A prosecutor says a caregiver who was also a pregnant quadriplegic Glendale woman’s boyfriend “did absolutely nothing” to save her life before she died in 2014.

Prosecutor George Kelemen Jr. said in court a probable-cause statement didn’t specify a cause of death but said Bridget Charlebois died because Reyes failed to provide assistance or get help.

Andres Bohn Reyes responded to Kelemen by saying “a lot of that was untrue, to be honest.”

The 28-year-old Reyes made an initial court appearance Wednesday after being arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and child abuse in the deaths of Charlebois and her unborn son.

A judge ordered Reyes held in lieu of $250,000 bond. The judge cited the serious allegations against Reyes and he could be a danger to small children and vulnerable adults.

A caregiver for a quadriplegic Glendale woman has been arrested in the 2014 deaths of her and her unborn child.

Court documents released Friday say 28-year-old Andres Bohn Reyes was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of first-degree murder and abuse of a child or vulnerable adult in the deaths of Bridget Charlebois and her unborn son.

A police probable-cause statement says Reyes lived with Charlebois as her boyfriend and was her employed caregiver.

The statement didn’t specify a cause of death but said Charlebois died because Reyes failed to provide assistance or get help.

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office didn’t immediately respond to an inquiry from The Associated Press.

Reyes remains jailed and when he made an initial court appearance he didn’t have an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
