CARROLLTON, Ga. -- A Carroll County man is charged with molesting and seriously hurting his 6-week-old child.
Casey Todd, 27, was arrested last week at a home in Carrollton after the child was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
CBS Atlanta spoke with great aunt of the baby's mother.
Barbara Cox is so furious she could barely contain her rage.
"I am so disgusted. I wish I could get a hold of him," said Cox. "[I would] beat the hell out of him."
Todd fathered the child of Cox's grand-niece and now Todd is accused of molesting his own two-month old daughter.
"Vile things. If you could've seen that baby when they brought her to the ambulance-you wouldn't believe it," said Cox.
The Carroll County Sheriff's Department said it all happened a week ago Monday.
An investigator told CBS Atlanta the uncle of the baby girl had just come home from work early that morning and found his distraught sister with her badly injured child.
They called 911 and when investigators arrived they found a baby who had been assaulted in the most brutal way.
The sheriff's department said the little girl suffered a fractured skull, broken leg and had been sexually abused.
"You can imagine a month old baby being put through that? That's rough on the mother, on everybody," said Cox.
The sheriff's department confirmed the baby's 22-year-old mother was asleep at the time of the assault.
She was not charged.
Cox said the entire family is trying to recover from the unspeakable and the unthinkable.
The sheriff's department says the baby is recovering and is in the custody of the Division of Family and Children Services.
Todd is charged with aggravated child molestation, aggravated battery, and first degree cruelty to a child.Technorati Tags: WEEK,Carrollton,Georgia,Father,CASEY,TODD,daughter,skull,battery,degree,custody,Division,Children,Services,news,Child,June,Carroll,hospital,Atlanta,Barbara,hell,Vile,Sheriff,Department,investigator,girl,everybody,injuries,month,molestation
