A 24-year-old man was arrested Friday for murder charges in connection with the killing of his girlfriend’s baby who lost her life from blunt force injuries to the head a few days after being brought to a local hospital.
It happened on September 29, 2019, when Efrain Gonzalez was watching on the 5-month-old girl, Anayelli, while her mother was listening to the music in the bathroom. As she stepped out from the shower, she found her daughter “gasping for air” and sustaining a swollen eye as well as a fractured skull.
The suspect, booze and cocaine-addicted, told police that the crying baby “slipped” out of his hands when he was trying to grab her to calm her down. He also admitted that the baby’s head struck the bassinet’s metal railing to the point she lost consciousness.
