Dad accused of repeatedly biting 7-month-old daughter "to get her to stop crying" (Springfield TWP, Ohio)

Dad CLIFTON JORDAN sounds like one clueless nitwit. He bit a baby to STOP her from crying? What kind of moron would do that? Notice that there is no mention of a mother in this home, and that this account is not clear on whether the baby is now in foster care or staying with "a relative" (who is presumably not the mother?). What happened to Mom?

(SPRINGFIELD TWP., OH) - - A father is accused of repeatedly abusing his baby daughter by biting her over an extended period of time.

Clifton Jordan, 21, admitted to police he bit his 7-month-old infant to get her to stop crying at their residence in the 6400 block of

Greenfield Drive in Springfield Township, Police Detective Jim Stroud wrote in a sworn statement filed in Hamilton County Municipal Court.

He is held without bond at the county jail on a child endangering charge.

The baby was admitted to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center on Monday with several scars from bite marks and at least one fresh wound, records state.

Her left ankle also was fractured, and she was malnourished for her age and size.

It is not clear this morning if the baby is in foster care or staying with a relative, or if there were other children in the home.
