The man, 21-year-old Kenta Evans, is being blamed. CBS 7 reports that he went to the mother’s house in June to see the baby. He then started to accuse the mother of seeing other men.
He got angry and broke the mother’s cellphone. While they were fighting, she picked up the baby and told the Kenta that he had to leave. That’s when he started to punch the mother with his fists while she was holding the baby.
A family member saw what was happening and stopped the fight, but it was too late. The baby was bleeding from the mouth, had difficulty breathing, and had multiple knots on his head. He was taken to the hospital where he died.
Evans has admitted to the fight and to punching the baby. His bail was set at $200,000.
