I thought "child endangerment" was having a pit bull in your house, or too many dirty dishes in your sink. Why is KILLING a child "endangerment"? Why is fracturing the skull and ribs of a 2-month-year old baby considered no different than leaving your bong on an end table???
Notice that once again we have a "babysitting" (i.e. useless deadbeat) dad (here identified as SHAWN MAYREIS) and a mother who has to work. Maybe because all of Daddy's tats make him unemployable?

Shawn Mayreis faces child-endangerment charges
Azariah Mayreis, just two months old, died in a horrific manner, if what police and prosecutors say is true.
The girl's father, Shawn Mayreis, 34, has been charged with injury to a child causing serious bodily injury in connection with the infant's March 8 death in which she suffered fractures to the skull and ribs.
The child had been left in her father's care at their apartment in the 2700 block fo Woodland Park that morning as her mom went off to work.
"Later, suspect Mayreis called both Azariah's mother and 911 when Azariah began to have problems breathing," HPD says. The child was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
"Further investigation led to Shawn Mayreis being charged in baby Azariah's death and he was arrested" Friday, police say.
