Houston Parents Seek Lower Bond in Case of Twin Infants’ Tragic Death

Houston, Texas – Parents charged in connection to the tragic deaths of their twin infants are seeking a reduction in bond amounts in court, as reported in court documents. Angelina Belinda Calderon and Fernando Vega, both 21 years old, are facing two counts each of injury to a child-serious bodily injury in relation to the passing of their 5-week-old twins in October of 2023.

During a recent court appearance, the couple’s attorneys requested lower bond amounts. Currently, both Calderon and Vega are being held on a $750,000 bond for each case. Calderon’s bond reduction hearing is scheduled for Friday, while Vega’s hearing is set for late May.

The heartbreaking incident first came to light when Houston Police Department patrol officers responded to a distressing scene in the 2100 block of Linden Creek Lane. There, two infants, identified by relatives as Massail and Mirena Vega, were discovered unresponsive in their crib.

Tragically, the twins did not survive, despite desperate attempts at resuscitation. An autopsy later revealed that the infants had suffered fatal injuries from a blunt object. The investigation also uncovered that the twins had not received necessary medical care since leaving the hospital.

Family members have shared conflicting accounts of the parents, with Calderon’s sister defending her as a dedicated mother. However, concerns have been raised about Vega’s alleged abusive behavior, with previous incidents of unlawful restraint being documented.

As the case unfolds, questions linger about the events leading up to the infants’ untimely deaths. The community awaits further developments in this heartbreaking story of loss and accountability.
