A Westmoreland County man jailed on charges he shook a 2-month-old baby so hard she suffered brain damage now faces a possible homicide charge because the baby has died.
State police said they anticipate filing the new charge against 30-year-old Matthew Milisits, of Vandergrift, who allegedly acknowledged shaking the baby on Thursday because she wouldn't stop crying. The baby was taken off life support at Children's Hospital of UPMC in Pittsburgh late Monday.
Mr. Milisits' attorney, Duke George, said he can't comment until after an autopsy and any new charge is filed.
Mr. Milisits remained in the Westmoreland County Jail on Tuesday, unable to post $500,000 bond.
