Shaken Baby Dies; Man Charged with Murder
Corduray Scott, 22, of Augusta, has been charged with murder after authorities say he shook his 3-month-old son Monday and caused the boy to go into a coma and eventually die.
The boy, Corduray Scott Jr., suffered serious injuries that included multiple broken ribs and two detached retinas. His mother took him to the hospital Monday after he appeared to be having seizures, but authorities say he likely suffered from shaken baby syndrome. The boy died Thursday.
The boy's father reportedly said he was upset with the boy because he wouldn't' stop crying.
Mr. Scott remains in jail under no bond.
