Father punches 5 month old daughter to death when she wouldn't stop crying during Hurricane Irma


Father punches 5 month old daughter to death when she wouldn
A 22 year old Florida father, Dekari Castell has admitted to fatally punching his 5 month old infant daughter to death while family members were taking shelter from the onslaught of Hurricane Irma, police say.
The family was seeking shelter in an Orlando home on Sept. 13 when 5-month-old Kali Dream Castell's mother called 911 because her daughter wasn't breathing.
When paramedics arrived at the home, they tried CPR on the infant before rushing little Kali to a hospital.

The baby was placed on life support, but a brain scan revealed bleeding in the brain and several skull fractures. Unfortunately, Kali didnt make it and was pronounced dead the next day.
Doctors later told police they'd discovered a depression in her skull that indicated she had been struck in the head.
This finding appeared to discredit the version of events given by father , who told authorities he dropped Kali after she wriggled out of his grasp days before.
Under further questioning, police said Castell's story changed.
During a third interview, investigators said Castell told them he punched his daughter's head while "highly stressed" because they were without power and Kali wouldn't stop crying.
Castell was arrested Monday and booked into the Orange County Jail on a charge of aggravated child abuse. On Tuesday evening, a first-degree murder charge was also filed against Castell, according to reports.
In his mugshot, Castell appears to have a tattoo above his left eye that says "Kali."
A judge denied Castell bail on the murder charge, so he has remained in the Orange County Jail since Wednesday..
