ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque dad who beat his infant son was scheduled to be sentenced in court Tuesday. However, his sentencing date has been rescheduled.

Last year Evan Ritchey admitted to choking and headbutting his four-month-old son because he wouldn’t stop crying.

Police say the infant’s injuries included rib and skull fractures. In April, Ritchey pleaded no contest to six abuse charges.

He faces a maximum of 18 years behind bars. Officials have not released the new sentencing date.
