Hidalgo’s 10-month old child was taken to a hospital by emergency crews Friday afternoon where he was pronounced dead.

Following his death, Ogden Police began searching for Hidalgo as a “person of interest.”

When they were unable to locate him police asked for help from the public with one citizen even offering a reward for information on his whereabouts.

Officers say Hidalgo was located Saturday afternoon thanks to tips from the community.

According to the Weber County Sheriff’s Office, Hidalgo was officially arrested on Sunday morning on more than a dozen charges including 2 counts of aggravated murder, 2 counts of obstruction of justice, 2 counts of “abuse or desecration of a dead human body,” and 6 counts of failure to appear on citation.

Jail records showed Hidalgo was originally being held on a $35,000 bail at the Weber County Jail however now they reflect that he is being held without a bail option.
