Murder charges dropped against two defendants in high-profile shaken baby case
CLINTON, Conn. — A 17-year-old father has charged with manslaughter in the death last year of his infant daughter in Connecticut.
The teenager was returned to Connecticut on Wednesday following his arrest in Columbia, S.C., where he had moved with family members after his daughter’s death in Clinton. His name was not released because of his age.
The 8-week-old girl died last March after police responded to a report that she was not breathing. She died a few days later at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Medical staff told police that the infant had injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
The teen waived extradition proceedings in South Carolina and is being held in lieu of $750,000 bond at a juvenile detention center in Hartford.
