Key West woman faces multiple charges
A Key West woman who became violent Monday night was arrested on multiple charges including neglecting her child’s welfare, attacking the child’s father and his brother and then fighting with officers who arrived to arrest her.
When Detective Lissette Zuelch arrived at the trailer on Front Street at 9 p.m., she found 24 year old Marjorie Maradiaga holding her 11 month old infant. She was visibly impaired, having trouble standing and slurring her words. Detective Zuelch asked her to hand the child over for safety’s sake. Maradiaga refused. With the help of Deputies Joe Cortner and Wendy Negron, the child was removed from her mother and Maradiaga was then detained as the deputies investigated the complaint.
