A Springfield man is in jail Thursday after prosecutors say he caused multiple injuries to a 4-month-old baby.
Skyler Lewis, 23, was charged Wednesday with child abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.
The child abuse charge, a Class A felony, carries a possible life sentence.
Court documents say Lewis admitted to becoming frustrated while changing a 4-month-old’s diaper so he bent and twisted the baby’s leg.
When the baby’s mother took the baby to the hospital, court documents say, the baby was diagnosed with a fractured femur, closed fracture of the skull, fractured ribs and a fractured tibia.
