OC Dad Charged In Baby's Attempted Murder, Torture

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have charged an Orange County man with the attempted murder and torture of his 2-month-old daughter.

Santa Ana police said Tuesday that 30-year-old Andres Tafoya is believed to have punched his infant daughter's head multiple times while watching her last Friday when the baby's mother was at work.

Police say Tafoya helped take the girl to the hospital but left before officers arrived. Authorities say the baby is in critical condition.

Tafoya was arrested Sunday and has been charged with attempted murder, torture and child abuse

Prosecutor Jennifer Duke says Tafoya appeared in court Tuesday and bail was set at $1 million. She says his arraignment was delayed until Nov. 22 and a public defender is being assigned to represent him.
