this story made me cry my eyes out. How could someone do this, how could anyone do this. This man is not a person he is a monster, HE NEEDS TO BE KILLED! I think all child molesters/abusers needs to have an automatic death sentence.
I know being a parent is hard sometimes, and I myself have lost control and spanked my toddler on the but or smacked her on the hand and raised my voice but I could NEVER imagine doing anything like that!!!
Someone please kill this man because if I see him on the streets he will get worse then death! I wished I could break every bone in his entire body!!! Makes me so mad. Poor angel, pray so hard for this baby boy.
The mother had to know what was going on and she deserves the same! I don't care how scared someone is of there bf's or husbands coming and killing them for telling on them or leaving them, I would do ANYTHING, risk ANYTHING, to protect my daughter. Also this woman needs to be ordered to have her tubes tied when found guilty! doesn't everyone else think so? if someone is charged with abuse or something of the sort of their child and found guilty that they should have to be made to have there tubes tied???

Ya know, I happen to know this girl. She is a young mother, and doing the best she can. This Punk Ass she ended up with, well that just happens sometimes. Im sure Buba will find him quite appealing in the big house. You all need to lay off the mother man. She had no clue. Realy. Stop. Stop talkin shit about her and take that time to say a prayer for the kid, and her. They need that.

but how could she not have known? It said it had previous broken ribs,shaken baby syndrome, and repeated signs of suffocation. There is no way she didn't see anything and she waited til now to say something.I just don't believe that. If it had broken ribs before that then she would have changed it's clothes or gave it a bath and seen the bruises on the baby.

I actually wonder if she did it, maybe she broke its ribs a few weeks back and then gave it shaking baby syndrome and freaked then took it to the hospital to blame it on the dad. she had to know one way or another she is guilty whether she did it or not! believe me i'm not making excuses for the man, just looking for other logical explanations. i just don't understand how someone could hurt they're child like that!

well I'm not sure, but I hope the paper puts both sides of the story in it. When something like this happens I think the public is entitled to know EVERYTHING. This is everyones business because these are child abusers were talking about.
I mean it was just a 3 month old baby...it's horrible to even think of.

There's something wrong with this whole story. I'm told that the baby went home from the hospital after 5 days. I'm not a doctor but I do have common sense..something is wrong with this whole story!! Did the baby go back in the house with the mother? Has she been investigated? Social services had better keep ther ducks in a row on this one! Any mother who didn't know something was wrong with their 3 month old baby..that ended up having 11 broken ribs is hiding something.. she better be checked out!

I don't care how young she is..if she's old enough to lay down and get pregnant ...she's old enough to figure out that something is wrong with a 3 month old with 11 broken ribs plus other injuries! Sounds like she is guilty of something...if nothing more...NEGLECT!!

yes the baby did come home with the mother!! which is bs, they should have kept the baby until they could do a full investigation, she even took him on a "trip" somewhere for a few days. Or at least that is what was on her myspace, I clicked on that link someone put on here and seen her status message. I read some comments that mad me sick! some people actually believe she didn't have nothing to do with anything! w/e we'll see... I'm sure stories will be coming out soon.

She had to know. I am a new parent, and I know when something is wrong with my little girl. It makes me feel bad when my little girl has a belly ache! HOW COULD YOU 2 HURT THAT BABY! ARE YOU SOME KIND OF F***ING MONSTER! IF BOTH OF YOU ARE CONVICTED I WOULD NOT CARE AT ALL TO PULL THE TRIGGER.

i just found this out, someone told me that he didn't even live with them! don't get me wrong he still could have done it but i'm seriously starting to doubt it. Someone like the grandparents needs to get that child away from that woman. I also hope that everyone isn't wishing death on an innocent man. I have no proof behind my theory but its kind of a gut feeling that i'm getting from this whole situation.

well i heard that he beat ashley, so she was probably scared to do anything. but if it was me, i'd do anything to protect my kid.

he may have beat her but any good mother would have still get out of there. I would lay down and die if it was to save my child! I hear his mom works at the hospital that would be a good temp home in my opinion until they find the truth.... maybe even a permanent home. i just think its a lil odd that someone who hardly gets to see his kid just jumps at the first opportunity he gets to hurt it, does that make any sense?

Sam if that is even your real name u need to shut up.
The baby did not have baby shaking syndrone.
Carl never did anything even when he worked he blew it all on ocs so i dnt wanna hear u all talking about ashley she is a good mother but u wouldnt know u prob dont even know her. thats why everyone needs to put their nose on there face and mind their bussinus the baby has never had bruises till that night when he was taken to the hosp.
So yeahh. Yuck u can shut the heck up.
