ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man will spend time behind bars for beating a baby boy with a hanger.

Rodrigo Navarro was arrested last summer after the 2-month-old’s mother found him with swelling and dark bruising on his face and ear.

He also had red marks on his chest and back.

Navarro told police he had been drinking and was frustrated because the baby wouldn’t calm down.

A judge sentenced him to 18 months, Friday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
