ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A two-month-old is in the hospital with severe brain injuries and investigators believe it was the baby’s father who caused them.
Brandon Greene, 24, is charged with child abuse resulting in great bodily harm. Deputies say the baby was brought to UNM Hospital this weekend with brain bleeds, retinal bleeds and unexplained bruises.
While Greene initially claimed he only hit the baby to help him breathe, investigators say his story doesn’t match up and he later admitted to dropping and shaking the infant.
Investigators also say Greene didn’t call 911 immediately even though the baby was unresponsive.
