Police: Man squeezed baby daughter so hard he broke her ribs
PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police are searching for a man accused of squeezing his baby daughter so hard he broke her ribs.
Police said Wednesday that 23-year-old Billy Damond Williams is facing a charge of attempted homicide.
A doctor who examined the 2-month-old girl in December says she was squeezed so tightly that she suffered four broken ribs and ruptured blood vessels in her eyes and face.
Police say they interviewed Williams then and found him “aloof” about the child’s injuries.
Williams spent 58 days in jail after pleading guilty to injuring his 5-month-old son in 2013 before the boy died. That boy suffered similar injuries to those inflicted on Williams’ daughter, though investigators never linked the boy’s death to his injuries.
Williams doesn’t have an attorney listed in court records.
