Muncie Father Arrested for Punching Infant

By Joe Ulery

A Muncie father is under arrest for punching and injuring his two-month-old son. Doctors say the boy has a fractured skull and several broken ribs. They also say the injuries were not an accident.

The Star Press reports Steven Edward Jones II, 20, faces preliminary charges of neglect of a dependent and battery on a child.

Doctors discovered the baby's injuries last week when his parents took him to the hospital because his head was swollen.

Jones has reportedly confessed to punching his son and being rough with him.

He is in the Delaware County Jail.
