The Monroe Medical Examiners preliminary report ruled the infant’s death as a homicide, noting that the multiple blows to the body were consistent with punches.
District Attorney Baker said that the sentencing guidelines for Manslaughter in the First Degree call for 10-20 years in prison. Baker also said that there may be additional charges, as the grand jury examines the case.
At this time, no charges have been filed against the baby’s mother.
