Dad charged with beating 11-week-old infant to death; was previously found guilty of assaulting another baby, but got probation (Easton, Pennsylvania)

Why the hell was dad JOSEPH URQUIA allowed around another infant as long as he lived? This piece of sh** has now been charged with criminal homicide in the beating death of his 11-week-old daughter. Scarcely a newborn. And this isn't the first time Daddy took out his freaking frustrations on a baby. Sometime in the past, he pleaded guilty to assaulting a 3-month-old daughter--and all he got was probation! Is is the same mother of both of these infants? If not, did the most recent mother know about Daddy's past? We have know way of knowing any of this, because the mother(s) in this story have been completely erased. It's as if Daddy plucked these children out of cabbage patch.

EASTON, Pa. (AP) — An eastern Pennsylvania man has been charged with beating his infant daughter to death in their Easton home.

Twenty-one-year-old Joseph Urquia was arraigned on a criminal homicide charge Tuesday, the same day that 11-week-old Joselynn was pronounced dead at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest. She had been taken there two days earlier with severe head injuries.

District Judge Gay Elwell sent Urquia to county prison without bail. A listed number for him could not be found Tuesday and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.

The (Allentown) Morning Call reports that he pleaded guilty to assaulting another daughter, who was 3 months old at the time. According to court records, Urquia was originally charged with felony aggravated assault but pleaded guilty to misdemeanor simple assault and was placed on probation for 18 months.
