Boyfriend Charged In New Castle Baby Death
New Castle police charged 23-year-old Mark Strickler in connection with the death of a toddler on Wednesday.
They said Strickler beat his girlfriend's 18-month-old son inside his house so badly that it put him in a coma.
The boy was on life support for 11 days, but died Tuesday night.
New Castle Police Chief Tom Sansone said there were injuries all over the baby’s body, including the face and chest.
Officials said the mother left for work at 2 o'clock and 45 minutes later Strickler called 911.
Sansone said the baby was found unresponsive with injuries throughout the body.
Neighbors who know the suspect said he's not like this and they don't believe what happened was intentional.
This is pathedic. He obviously isn't that good of a guy if he beats his girlfriends 18 month old to death... People need to put their heads on straight... Dumb ones.
