Neveah's father, Richardson
This story has Michiganders upset!
'9-DAY old baby dies, possibly SEXUALLY ASSAULTED BEFORE DEATH'
Father beats up mother in car while holding bleeding baby, arrested
The baby, who was born three weeks' premature on Nov. 15, died Nov. 24 after she was rushed to the hospital with blood coming from her mouth and rectum.
Nobody has been charged with the crime, but the child's father, 21-year-old Christopher Ryan Richardson, was arraigned this afternoon on a domestic violence charge, a third offense, a felony punishable by up to two years in jail and a $2,500 fine.
Bond was set at $100,000.
Richardson allegedly grabbed the back of the head and slapped the face of Cynthia Gosicicki, Nevaeh's mother, and threatened her if something happened to the baby, Lincoln Park Police Chief Thomas Karnes said
"I'm not guilty," Richardson told 25th District Judge David J. Zelenak as he asked for a court-appointed attorney.
Richardson has two previous convictions for domestic violence charges. He also was on probation since Nov. 20 on a drug charge in Roscommon, according to his mother, Adie Green.
"I am so tired and really angry," said Green, 39, whose aunt raised Richardson since he was 3 1/2 years old.
Richardson's preliminary examination is Dec. 4. Police were continuing their probe of Neveah's death, which the medical examiner ruled a homicide. The child was living in Green's home with four other adults."This is a terrible crime," Karnes said. "It's the worst thing I have ever come in contact with and it's the worst thing I've ever heard of.
"Nevaeh" is Heaven spelled backwards, what a coincidence. *smh*
May she rest in peace, and thoughts and prayers go out to the families.
