My first thought, before I turned the sound up – “Wow. Kim Thayil from Soundgarden is back in the news!”
No such luck. The guy is alleged to have killed a 41-day-old baby.
A bruised upper lip. Broken ribs. A severe skull fracture.
The head injury would kill tiny Delijahjuan Winden on Tuesday, after only 41 days of life. The infant died when his caregiver, Daniel Leikas, raised him over his head and threw him into a car seat, according to charges filed Wednesday. He was frustrated because Delijahjuan was fussy and had been crying all night, the court document said.
“This is the first time I’ve seen an infant this young beaten this badly,” Minneapolis Police Capt. Mike Martin said.
Not to pre-judge – but I know that when I was looking for “caregiver” for babies, “looking like Satan” was a big showstopper.
