Dad arrested in sexual abuse, death of 2-month-old daughter (Fresno County, California)

All I can say is that I hope there is an especially warm place in Hell for daddies like JORGE HERNANDEZ who rape and kill infants.

Fresno County, Calif. (KMPH News) – A Fresno County father is under arrest in connection with the death of his two month old daughter. Investigators say 20–year–old Jorge Hernandez is facing one charge of felony child abuse resulting in death.

Fresno County Sheriff's deputies arrested Hernandez Wednesday night at his home on the 3,900 block of Kenmore Drive North.

Deputy Chris Curtis says it was child's parents who initially rushed their daughter to Children's Hospital Central California on November 5th.

Specific details on the nature of her injuries have not yet been released.

But, investigators say the two month old was so badly hurt that medical staff called sexual assault detectives to the hospital.

"The sexual assault detectives responded out to the hospital and through their investigation they determined the father, 20–year–old Jorge Hernandez was responsible for the injuries to the child," Deputy Curtis said.

Neighbors in the Mayfair community say they are sadden by the loss.

"I think it's sad," Jovita Hernandez said. "I have kids. My baby is fourteen months old. A two–month–old baby... that's really sad."

Doctor's took the infant off life–support, five days after she was admitted to Children's Hospital Central California. They say the baby girl's injuries were too severe for her little body to take.

The Fresno County Sheriff's Department says the mother of the two month old is not a suspect. Detectives from the Sexual Assault and Homicide Unit are handling the investigation.
