Lancaster County, PA (The Weekly Vice) - Eric Ortega, the 29-year-old Pennsylvania man who beat an infant so hard, he dented the child's head, was back in court Monday for more charges.
Eric Ortega faces new charges, following his arrest in May for severely beating his 4-month-old daughter.
According to police, Ortega beat and shook the child so severely, doctors say Ortega's fists left dents in the child's head. Doctors also believe that the child is now potentially blind, suffered rib and skull fractures and relies on a feeding tube because of the attack.
Prosecutors have filed additional charges, alleging that Ortega failed to provide medical care for the infant after the beating.
Ortega told police he had become frustrated because the baby wouldn't stop crying.
The baby's mother took the child to the hospital after picking her and realizing she was having a hard time breathing.
Ortega is being held in Lancaster County Prison on charges of aggravated assault. His bond was set at $1 million.
