HOUSTON—A father accused of brutally shaking his 7-week-old daughter appeared before a Harris County judge Tuesday.
Investigators said in April, Jeremy Santiago Vargas violently shook his baby girl -- causing her to suffer brain bleeding -- and broke 15 her ribs.
The infant’s mother is also facing charges. Investigators said she left the baby in Vargas’ care, but did not take her to the hospital immediately after seeing the injuries.
The baby girl survived the injuries.
Vargas' bond remains at $30,000.
