Corduray Keith Scott, 22, of the 1800 block of Fayetteville Drive, was arrested on Monday and charged with first-degree cruelty to children, according to Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Scott Peebles. He will now be charged with murder, Peebles said.

An ambulance brought the baby to University Hospital on Monday after the child was found trembling and “appearing to have a seizure,” according to the warrant application for Scott’s arrest.

The warrant application indicated that Scott violently shook the child in an attempt to make him stop crying.

The baby suffered nine broken ribs and two detached retinas, Peebles said. He had been on life support.

I can't tell you how angry

I can't tell you how angry this makes me. So many parents wanting children and this jerk kills the one he has. If this child was too much for him he could have given him away to a loving family but no He takes out his anger and kills the baby. Death is too good for this sorry piece of flesh; He needs to be tortured for what he did.

People make mistakes, and

People make mistakes, and parents can be frustrated and lose control. But putting his dying child into a swing and walking away from him and not getting him help- that's about as cold-blooded as it gets. And that was his own flesh and blood.

Must've been on drugs or something. I say sentence him to the care of some concerned loving fathers right now. What about the mother of this baby? Wonder how much she knows?

I feel bad for the mother cause odds are she probably worked and left this Chump at home to watch his own kids and he probably sat home all day playing Xbox and eating Cheetos and beating on his kids. But she needs some blame also cause as a mother you have to notice something is wrong. I am sure he had a temper and low patience I sick of Baby Daddy's when are these dudes gonna grow up and act like MEN!

Mistakes?? you have empathy

Mistakes?? you have empathy for a [filtered word] who kills a kid because it won't stop crying as long as he would have gotten the child help sooner, but a man who takes his crying child to kroger at 4am you bash with everything you have. You have went off your perfect little deep end!

Where in this story does it

Where in this story does it say that he was a baby daddy, he could have been married to the mother. He's sick regardless of that fact, he has a special place in hell for this. My heart goes out to the mother because I know she is in a terrible place right now. I couldn't imagine losing one of my children, especially by the hands of his father.

I don't condone what he did,

I don't condone what he did, under any circumstances, but shaking a baby is so easy to do for so many people- all it takes is just lose control for one minute and get frustrated just one time- and people talk about ME being perfect. Ok, whatever. And before anybody starts to snark me, no, I have never done that.

While I have not seen the

While I have not seen the movie "Precious"- nor do I intend to do so, I don't view sexual abuse and physical abuse of a person as entertaining- there is a big difference about the story of Precious, who is a 17 year old girl, and shaken-baby syndrome, and I guess you don't know the difference. It wasn't even described until 1946, and it wasn't until I was a teenager- in the 1970's- that it was even discussed publicly. It only takes a minute to do it, and it's done out of frustration and ignorance. Many people don't even realize what they are doing and how dangerous it is. There isn't even a legal definition of it, and it's very hard to convict someone of it. It's just plain sad.
