Mott Haven father accused of killing infant son indicted on murder charges
A Mott Haven father accused of killing his own infant son has been indicted on murder and manslaughter charges.
Prosecutors say Christian Rodriguez hit his 1-month-old several times before tossing him on the floor this past March. Authorities say he did this because he was frustrated with his son's crying.
The infant suffered two fractures to his skull, as well as other severe brain injuries.
He was brought to a hospital where he went into cardiac arrest and died after efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
