SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A South Texas man has been charged with breaking the skull of his girlfriend’s 8-month-old son when the restless baby apparently kept him from sleeping.
Officials say 19-year-old Julian Garza of San Antonio was booked Tuesday on a charge of injury to a child. Bond was set at $30,000.
An affidavit says Garza told police he was home alone with the boy Monday and both were on a bed. The affidavit says Garza said the infant’s feet were moving and the child kept him awake. Police believe Garza caused the baby’s head to hit a window sill.
The boy was taken to a hospital. His name and further details on his condition weren’t immediately available.
Online Bexar (bayr) County jail records had no further details on Garza or an attorney.
