Carlos Rivera is facing multiple charges including indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 and distributing drugs to a minor in connection with the death of Chloe Ricard.
Officials said the 47-year-old Lawrence man allegedly brought Chloe to Lawrence General Hospital on May 20, where she was pronounced dead shortly after her arrival.
On Saturday, investigators determined that Rivera was accompanied by a 16-year-old girl the day he brought Chloe to the hospital. Essex County DA's office stated in a release that Chloe and the other girl were at Rivera's Lawrence apartment at 59 Bellevue Street on the evening of May 19 and during most of the next day.
Police said they believe the two girls spent the night at Rivera's place.
Rivera will be arraigned in Lawrence District Court. Read more on this story here.
