A Sulphur man, already jailed on video voyeurism charges, will remain incarcerated after detectives say he admitted he threw a baby across the room shortly before the infant died.
Child Protection notified the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office that the 13-month-old baby was brought to a local hospital by his caregiver Saturday because the baby was in distress.
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office said deputies learned the baby had a skull fracture and he was immediately transferred to a hospital in Baton Rouge. CPSO detectives worked the case throughout the weekend and interviewed the family members as well as the mother's boyfriend, Trent Dubroc, 24, Sulphur.
The baby has been on life support at the Baton Rouge hospital. At10:20 Monday morning, the infant was removed from life support and pronounced dead.
During their interview of Dubroc, deputies say he confirmed to them he removed the baby from the crib and threw the baby across the room out of frustration on Thursday. Dubroc allegedly told investigators he returned the baby to the crib and notified no one.
Judge Michael Canaday set bond at $1.5 million.
Dubroc was already in jail. He was arrested Saturday on a bench warrant for failure to appear in court on Sept. 20 on video voyeurism charges.
