ABQ man admits to shaking newborn daughter

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man was in court Thursday for shaking his newborn daughter so hard she’s in critical condition.

Police arrested 22-year-old Stefon Miller Wednesday. They say he called 911 on Tuesday after the baby was unconscious and having trouble breathing.

According to a criminal complaint, Miller told police he had been playing with the baby by tossing her up in the air and catching her.

But doctors told APD the baby’s injuries were not consistent with what miller was claiming.

Police say he eventually admitted he shook the baby out of frustration.

She was rushed to UNM Hospital where doctors say she suffered a brain bleed and required emergency surgery.

He was arrested and charged with child abuse.
