Dad charged with 1st-degree murder in death of 7-week-old baby (St. Petersburg, Florida)

Dad is identified as MICHAEL GUADALUPE.

Notice that this is another case where Mom had to work, while the abusive, deadbeat dad played at caregiver. And once again, a child dies because young males are easily frustrated and have no nurturing skills.

St. Petersburg, Florida -- The father of a 7-week-old baby was arrested Thursday following an investigation into his son's death on July 7.

Detectives first became involved in the case after the baby was taken to All Children's Hospital on June 29.

Police say on that day, the boy was left in the care of his father, Michael Guadalupe, while his mother went to work. The father claimed the infant had been fed and put in his crib after becoming fussy. The father then saw the infant was unresponsive and he called 911.

During the course of the investigation, detectives learned the boy had extensive internal injuries which were inconsistent with the father's account of what happened.

The child underwent surgery and was taken off life support July 7.

The medical examiner's determined the baby's cause of death was blunt head trauma and were consistent with being shaken.

The manner of death has been ruled homicide. Detectives tried to interview Guadalupe again, but he refused to speak with them. The child's mother is not a suspect.

Guadalupe has been charged with 1st degree murder.
