A Warren County chiropractor is accused of battering his three-month-old daughter, because she was ‘picky’, and he wanted a son, according to prosecutor David Fornshell.
Police arrested Jason Bittner at West Chester Chiropractic office after a grand jury indicted him on felonious assault and endangering children last week.
Fornshell said Bittner, 33, was disappointed that his newborn child was a girl and not a boy. Fornshell believes that was a contributing factor to the abuse.
