A West Virginia man has admitted to the brutal torture and shaking of his infant son who is only but a few months old. The father, Ian Kessinger, 30, also has a two year old daughter who he says he has not abused and two other children whom which he does not have custody of. The infant’s injuries were found when he was brought to a routine checkup and the pediatrician noticed some abnormalities. The doctor recommended that the baby be admitted to the hospital where scans revealed that the baby had a fractured skull, a broken collar bone and a broken wrist. Authorities believe these injuries accumulated over several incidents.
Ian Kessinger is reportedly showing remorse but blames his anger issues on drugs and alcohol. At this time, the mother, Emily Sayre, 31, is not currently being charged with a crime because police believe she didn’t know about the abuse, although it’s hard to imagine such serious injuries would go unnoticed. The couple is not married although sources say they have been together for many years. Kessinger is currently being held on a $75,000 bond, charged with felony child abuse and if convicted will only serve between 2 – 10 years.
