EMT Drugs Deaf Fiance, Punches Six-Month-Old Son in the Head Until His Skull Cracked
Detroit continues to be a cesspool of violence and crime, but one story out of the Motor City goes beyond the pale. An EMT is accused of drugging his deaf fiancé before beating his infant son.
A 23-year-old Michigan man is facing child abuse charges after police say he savagely beat his 6-month-old son, leaving the infant clinging to life.
Nicholas Spiridione, an EMT from Detroit, is accused of sending baby Jesse to the hospital with severe head trauma last Saturday.
The baby boy, who is suffering from brain swelling and hemorrhaging, has undergone emergency surgery and is listed in critical condition at Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit.
… Ms Stahl, a veterinary student who works as a dog groomer, said she is hearing-impaired and did not hear her child’s screams from the other room. She also said her fiance drugged her with a cocktail of medications before allegedly attacking their son.
‘I wasn’t there to protect him,’ the 24-year-old woman tearfully told MyFox Detroit. ‘He’s my baby. That’s what I’m supposed to do.’
What causes someone to do such an awful thing to someone so vulnerable and helpless? It’s impossible to understand cases like this, except to serve as a reminder that evil truly does still exist in this world.
