Father booked with murder of his infant daughter

New Orleans, La - A 21 year old Gert Town man is under arrest for the murder of his 2-month old daughter.

New Orleans Police say Micah Short and his wife took their baby to the hospital yesterday, claiming he had tripped over a box and hit his daughter's head on the crib.

Doctors were not able to resuscitate the little girl.

According to the NOPD, Short later admitted he lied about the incident and confessed that he struck the baby when she wouldn't stop crying.

He's booked with first degree murder as well as domestic abuse battery related to an incident involving his wife back in March.
