HARTFORD, Conn. – Police in Connecticut have arrested the parents of a seriously injured 6-week-old baby, who is not expected to survive.
Hartford police say the 23-year-old Edwin Babilonia, and the 20-year-old Ashley Perez were on Friday arrested on charges of cruelty to persons and the leaving of a child under the age of 12 under the supervision.
Deputy director Brian Foley says the baby was taken to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center on Thursday with cranial bleeding, severe bruising, rib fractures and a clavicle fracture.
The baby will continue to receive emergency care, but Foley says that the police “believe this case led to a fatality.”
Babilonia and Perez be held on $ 500,000 bond each. It was not immediately clear if they have a lawyer.
