BIZZARE: Man Kills A 5-Month-Old Baby For Crying During A Football Game
Tre'viance Markese Walker, 22, allegedly grabbed 5-month-old JB so aggressively that his head "snapped back."
He is then accused of dropping the infant from a height of 2-feet. JB was found four hours later "unresponsive" in his playpen, with bruising to his head and blood in his ear.
Rushed to the hospital, he was pronounced dead soon after — with an autopsy revealing he'd suffered severe head trauma and a hematoma on the brain.
Walker, who'd been looking after the baby for just a few hours on Dec. 7, was reportedly watching the University of Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State football game on TV.
Arrested, he initially denied harming the child. But Fox 25 reports that he later confessed to the abuse, which allegedly happened at around 2 p.m.
Neighbor Jimmy Shannon told the station that Walker was also angry about losing a $200 bet.
"The baby wouldn't stop crying so he allegedly went and picked up the baby with such force as to snap the baby's neck," he added.
Walker is currently being held at Cleveland County jail without bond.
