Nothing really spells out horrible, hell-bound d-bag like infanticide, and one Northeast Ohio guy is currently facing charges for killing his own kid. According to Channel 5, authorities believe Wayne County native Timothy Gresser, 22, smacked his 18-month daughter Kali upside the head and then rushed her to the hospital, claiming she’d fallen out of her crib.
Doctors quickly saw that the child’s injuries didn’t support the father’s account. After the child died on September 30, investigators confirmed their suspicions.
"The Summit County medical examiners office conducted an autopsy and the results clearly show that the child was physically abused and died as a result of a blow to the head. Deputies continued the investigation and interviewed Gresser a second time on Monday. During that interview, Gresser admitted to causing the damage that led to the child's death," Sheriff Mauer stated in a news release.
Gresser was charged with murder and felonious assault. He is being held in the Wayne County Jail.
