Dad gets 30 years for murder of newborn son (Baltimore, Maryland)

Yet another short-tempered moron who beat a baby to death for crying. Daddy is identified as DION WARE.


Man sentenced in newborn son's death

Dion Ware sentenced to 30 years in prison

Published 3:58 PM EDT Jul 28, 2014 BALTIMORE —A man convicted in connection with the death of his newborn son was sentenced to 30 years in prison, according to Baltimore prosecutors.

In April, the Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office said a jury convicted Dion Ware, 22, of child abuse resulting in death. The jury could not reach a consensus on the charge of second-degree murder.

Prosecutors said Ware first claimed he was giving CPR to his child when he noticed his 6-week-old son was having trouble breathing on Nov. 26, 2012. He said he realized he was pushing too hard on the child during CPR so he ran out into the street to have someone call 911.

The child was taken to Johns Hopkins Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Prosecutors said doctors found severe bruising to the right side of the child's face and chest, as well as multiple fractured ribs. Based upon the multiple injuries the medical examiner ruled the death a homicide.

Prosecutors said Ware later admitted to hitting his son because the child would not stop crying.
