Jaime Rogel & Mirshad Pineda Wanted for Child Abuse

More than six months after they were accused of abusing their daughter, a northwest Houston couple remain at large, authorities said Monday.

Jaime Rogel, 26, and Mirshad Pineda, 22, were charged Feb. 1 with felony injury to a child for a 2008 incident at their home in the 8900 block of Jones, officials said.

Pineda told investigators she saw Roger — the child's biological father - holding their 1-year-old daughter to the ground on Nov. 14. He also struck her several times, officials said.

The girl was taken to the hospital the next day but her parents didn't tell the physician about the attack. On Nov. 20, she was again taken to the hospital after suffering seizures where her parents still refused to tell doctors about the earlier incident, officials said.

Pineda was already on probation for an earlier injury to a child charge involving her 7-month-old son.

Investigators believe the couple is still in the Houston area. Warrants have been issued for their arrests.

Crime Stoppers will offer up to $5,000 for information leading to their arrests. Call 713-222-8477.
