Dad arrested for abuse of 7-week-old daughter; baby has skull, rib fractures (Sheboygan, Wisconsin)

Once again, a "frustrated" dad who virtually abused a baby from birth (i.e. evidence of healing rib fractures at 7-weeks of age). No word on what happened to the mother.

WHY WE NEED PAID MATERNITY LEAVES, folks. So mothers can care for their babies, and idiots like this can go haul rocks for a living and support a family. That is if they are even capable of and/or interested in getting a job. Which is many cases they aren't.

Dad is identified as GEORGE KUBLE.

Child Seriously Injured, Father Jailed

Sheboygan man charged with injuring 7-week old

SHEBOYGAN, Wis.(WHBL) - A Sheboygan man is facing a charge of felony physical abuse of a child and his 7-week old daughter remains hospitalized at Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee. 32 year old George Kuble was formally charged yesterday in Sheboygan County Court. Authorities said police were called to St. Nicholas Hospital last Friday after the infant was brought in with a skull fracture. It was later determined the child also had broken ribs that were in the process of healing. Police said Kuble first denied causing the injuries but later tearfully admitted he had become frustrated when the infant wouldn’t sleep. He said he grabbed her with both hands around her chest and squeezed her than threw her onto a couch where she struck her head. Kuble is facing up to 15 years in prison, if convicted.
