PHOENIX – It’s a tragic case of child abuse: a 3-month-old boy was beaten to death and police say his father is to blame. Now the boy’s mother speaks exclusively to FOX 10. The mother, who should have been enjoying motherhood, is now preparing to bury her young son. Police say the child’s father admitted to shaking his own son. The boy clung to life at an area hospital for three days before he passed away. “He was breathing and he died, but he died in my arms,” said Imari McClure, the boy’s mother. McClure never though she would be planning a funeral for her 3-month-old baby boy. Francisco Hernandez, Jr. died of shaken baby syndrome on Wednesday.
