2008_10_babbx.jpgThe police arrested a man for abusing his 8-month-old son to death. The medical examiner's office says that baby Elijah Rodriguez had "blunt trauma to the abdomen" (the Daily News says there were "fist-shaped bruises" there), attributing his death to "fatal child-abuse syndrome." His 21-year-old father, John Rodriguez, was charged with murder and manslaughter; he and the baby's mother Wanda Rosado, who were living at a Bronx shelter for homeless families, were already being monitored because Elijah had a broken arm in the summer. Rosado apparently "rushed" at Rodriguez when he was being led from the stationhouse. She told the Post, "I wanted to kill him. He will suffer for this."
