Dad convicted of felony murder in death of 5-month-old daughter (Houston, Texas)

ANOTHER case where Mom had to work (a double shift on Black Friday, no less), while the bozo babysitting father couldn't manage to check his "frustration" with normal infantile crying. So the piece of sh** killed the baby.

The killer dady is identified as INIUBONG EBONG.

HOUSTON — A Houston father who was convicted of felony murder Monday in the death of his infant daughter has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Iniubong Ebong was convicted of hitting his 5-month-old baby daughter, Indya Ebong, so hard he lacerated her liver in November 2010.

Investigators said Ebong, who was 31 at the time of the incident, was babysitting the infant while her mother worked a double shift on Black Friday. He called the mother to say the girl needed to go to the hospital because something was wrong.

When the mother arrived, she found her daughter unresponsive and the father sound asleep. The baby was pronounced dead at the hospital. Authorities believe she had actually been dead a couple of hours before the mom arrived home.

An autopsy later determined the cause of death to be blunt force trauma to the abdomen. Her liver had been lacerated.

CPS said the family had no history of trouble at the home. They said Iniubong Ebong didn’t live with his daughter, but babysat her sometimes.

Authorities said he first claimed he dropped the child, and then later admitted he struck her because she wouldn’t stop crying.
