Man Arrested After Shaking Three-Month-Old Baby

By Alex Brown @WIBC_AlexBrown

A 20-year-old Shirley, Indiana man is behind bars on child abuse charges.

The Hancock County Sheriff's Department says a three-month-old child was admitted to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health on Wednesday with serious injuries. The child's injuries were not the result of routine care or handling and were "consistent with a deliberate act with no previous trauma."

The child's father, William McDonald, was arrested for Neglect of a Dependant and Battery after he confessed to shaking the child. McDonald told investigators he lost control of his emotions after he could not get the child to stop crying.

McDonald is being held in the Hancock County Jail.
