‘Jealousy, sibling rivalry’: Woman shot, killed sister and her 3-week-old baby, police say Read more
The couple were discovered unconscious, face down in a bed, with one child on top of them. The other, 3-week-old Isaac, was found in the living room, unresponsive and apparently suffering an apparent seizure.
The child’s mother, 34, had suffered a broken shoulder and was in critical condition.
Officers discovered the pair when they responded to a call of domestic violence at an apartment complex in south Houston. They found a bloody, bound, unconscious man they described as the suspected perpetrator.
The couple’s three infants – two boys and a baby girl – were taken by rescue personnel to a local hospital. The babies received lifesaving treatment, according to a Harris County Fire Department spokesman.
The suspected male was charged with murder and arrested. The child’s grandfather has been charged with injury to a child, which is a second-degree felony.
