Prosecutors are blaming a man for brain injuries that his infant child had suffered in October.
Elvin Pomier Jr., 28, was charged with injury to a child after his infant son was taken to Texas Children's Hospital in critical condition on Oct. 1. Pomier told deputies on that day that his 2-month old son woke up and had redness on his face.
Investigators determined the baby was refusing to drink formula and Pomier had told them that the child burped loudly three times and became limp, which led Pomier to call a pediatrician and contact 911 by phone.
Doctors told deputies that Pomier admitted he had shaken his 2-month-old son the baby, according to a probable cause document filed against him.
Detectives said the baby suffered bleeding in multiple layers, brain swelling and dead tissue in part of his brain.
The baby is expected to survive.
Pomier is in custody at the Harris County Jail with a bond amount set at $30,000.
