Deaf parents are arrested and charged after their infant was beaten to death.
Two deaf parents in Texas have been charged with a gruesome crime. After a night of drinking, the couple began arguing over who was going to care for their crying 5-month-old daughter. The father claimed he tried to give the infant to the mother, but she was too drunk and would not console the infant.
Things soon took a horrible turn. The dad reportedly began shaking the infant and hit the back of the baby’s head several times on the kitchen counter. He then allegedly struck the face, causing the child to fall onto the floor.
Several hours later, the police were called and the infant was taken to the hospital where she was declared dead.
Last year, a Texas mother, Elizabeth Escalona was sentenced to 99 years in prison. After having problems with potty training her 2 year old daughter, Escalona admitted to super gluing the child's hands to the wall and then beating her senseless. The 2-year-old was in a coma for two days.
