A 16-month-old toddler was beaten to a pulp and left in a coma after Shaquan Taylor had decided he did not want to be a father. The 19-year-old took his frustration out on his daughter and left the toddler in need of medical assistant, and she was rushed to the hospital. The 16-month-old toddler passed away five days later after the incident and was still in a coma.
Local authorities questioned the teen father, and he claimed the toddler got injured because she fell off the bed, but doctors said that the post mortem stated otherwise. Nylaha’s bruises did not come from falling off a bed. Taylor awaits his hearing, and if found guilty he could face up to 5 years in prison.
