A Maryland man accused of shaking his baby daughter to death has been charged, according to Howard County police.
Police arrived at Aron James Krampf’s residence in Elkridge, Md., Tuesday about 12:45 p.m. in response to a call about an unconscious infant who wasn’t breathing. She was immediately transported to Johns Hopkins Children’s Hospital in Baltimore.
Police believe that Krampf shook the baby to stop her from crying. The infant died Thursday morning as a result of the critical injuries she sustained, including brain hemorrhaging and fractures throughout her body.
On Wednesday night the police charged Krampf with first- and second-degree assault, child abuse and reckless endangerment. Authorities predict that murder charges will be added when the case goes before a grand jury later this month.
Krampf is being held on a $1 million bond.
