CEDAR CITY — An infant police say was shaken and critically injured by his father — now a convicted felon — died two weeks ago after several months on life support. The death occurred just one day after another Cedar City child died from what police believe is another incidence of child abuse.
The (now) 11-month-old child was just a few months old when his grandmother found him not breathing at his father’s Cedar City residence. Police were contacted after she took him to Valley View Medical Center on Dec. 18, with severe internal injuries, which medical experts later concluded was consistent with shaken baby syndrome, according to court documents.
