LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A man accused of killing his 22-month-old daughter admitted to the crime Monday in court.
Nicholas Jones plead guilty to first degree manslaughter after holding his baby upside down, squeezing her, shaking her, and throwing her up against a couch inside his home back in March.
Authorities say he admitted he had done the shaking some time before, and became violent because the baby was crying.
The autopsy showed Gabriella had an older head and rib injury in addition to the severe blunt force trauma that caused her death.
Jones was originally indicted on both the manslaughter charge and a murder charge.
