Investigators say a Walland man intentionally pushed his six-week-old daughter from infant seat, causing severe bruising to the baby's abdomen and liver.

Jami-Dean Wesley Gregory, 30, of Walland, is charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect. He was arrested over the weekend.

Court documents indicated Gregory "knowingly and recklessly pushed infant victim from an infant seat casing the infant to fall onto a hard plastic toy."

Gregory admitted that he was responsible for the baby's injuries because he was "frustrated" that she wouldn't stop crying.
