New Years Baby Dies

A baby boy who claimed the title of the first New Years Baby has passed away. His death though, isn't the result of some illness, or accident. Rather, it came at the hands of his own father, who was angered after having an argument with the child's mother. Camryn Jakeb Wilson born 33 minutes after the stoke of New Years, is now part of a statistic, being one of the 1,400 babies annually injured or killed by someone shaking them.

Camryn's father, Craig R. Wilson, 28, of Cuyahoga Falls, is scheduled for a pretrial hearing on murder and other charges August 20. Police say he confessed to shaking and squeezing the infant after arguing with his wife, Crystal Wilson.

But he has pleaded not guilty to all the charges and faces trial in September.

"There are no excuses for this to happen to any baby," said Crystal Wilson, 26. "This is murder. He had no reason to die. He died because he cried"
