James Lujan Arrested for Killing 4-year-old

The man accused of killing a 4-year-old Lompoc boy as a result of child abuse, is facing murder charges.

James Lujan was arrested Saturday night for death of Diego Calles. Calles was rushed to the hospital after his mother called 911. Calles died at the hospital.

After an initial investigation, Lompoc Police had reason to believe Lujan had abused the boy, causing injuries that resulted in his death.

On Tuesday, Lujan was scheduled to appear in a Lompoc court for his arraignment, but that was postponed to early August.

The Lompoc District Attorney's Office says, Lujan is facing one count of murder, assault on a child causing death, felony causing injury to a spouse or child's parent.

Lujan does have a prior abuse conviction.
