Ernest Lopez released on bond

Amarillo, TX - An Amarillo baby-sitter accused of sexually assaulting a six-month-old girl has been released on bond, just a month after his conviction and 60-year sentence were overturned.

41 year-old Ernest Lopez is now awaiting a new trial in the case of Isis Vas, who died in October of 2000.  He was suspected of sexually assaulting and shaking the baby girl, which led to his original conviction.

Lopez is expected to be re-tried later this year.
