Her father. 28-year old Daniel Torres, is facing several charges in connection with the baby’s death, including assault and battery on a child with injury.

According to court documents, an officer was called to Baystate Noble Hospital Saturday for a report of an unresponsive 8-month-old baby. 

She was placed on life support, but later died from her injuries.

Torres allegedly changed his story multiple times, but finally admitted to hitting his daughter out of frustration. 

He is being held on a $1 million bond and is due back in court for a pre-trial hearing on August 28.
