Dad kills infant daughter within 30 minutes of his visitation; had "hangover" and past history of DV (Garland, Texas)

It's not clear here whether dad TOMMY JAMES WHITE JR. had court-ordered visitation or not, but it really doesn't matter. If it wasn't court-ordered, he easily could have made it court-ordered if Mom didn't "cooperate"--even though he has a history of domestic violence. As we know, fathers with a history of DV tend to have the abusive personalities that insist on their "rights" so they are usually successful in getting their way. 

So no surprise here really. Within 30 minutes of his visitation with the baby, this POS gets "frustrated" and kills a newborn. No better than a freaking animal, really. .

GARLAND, Texas -— A Garland man is facing murder charges in the death of his five-week-old daughter, who was critically injured while home alone with him.

Tommy James White Jr., 20, is charged with capital murder of a person under six years of age in the death of his daughter, Spencer Claire White.

"We believe the baby was crying, and that's why the injuries occurred," said Garland police spokesman Joe Harn.

According to court documents obtained by News 8, White told police the baby was crying, so he picked her up and placed his hand around the back of her neck and squeezed her too tight. He told investigators he was frustrated because he had a hangover and a severe headache.

Spencer Claire White was alone with her father Friday morning for about 30 minutes while the child's mother and her stepfather left to buy a new pacifier. Police said the girl wasn't breathing when the relatives returned.

The infant was transported to Children's Medical Center Dallas and died Friday night. Doctors said the girl suffered multiple injuries.

Last summer, White was arrested for allegedly assaulting another family member in the same home.

Bond was set at $1 million for White, who was being held Monday in the Dallas County Jail. No information was immediately available on an attorney.
