A Columbus father who is accused of slamming his infant son to the ground faces murder charges.
Quindell Sherman, 20, was fighting with the 3-month-old’s mother, Sonja Mitchell, before he took the infant outside, threw him to the ground several times and then ran off with the infant, according to a police report.
Columbus police officers were called to the 1100 block of East 16th Avenue at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Officers found the infant, severely injured, in a trash bin.
The infant was transported to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in trauma arrest.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital less than an hour later.
Sherman was arrested and charged with murder Tuesday night.
