The Calgary grandparents accused of killing five-year-old Eneas Emilio Perdomo also face fraud charges related to accusations they lied to the Alberta government in order to collect social assistance. Allan Edgardo Perdomo Lopez, the boy’s grandfather and Carolina Del Carmen Perdomo, Emilio’s step-grandmother were charged with manslaughter last month after a year-long investigation into the child’s death.
