LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A Lafayette man has been found guilty for causing the death of his baby son.
A jury convicted Gabriel Hallman, 31, on Thursday of five felonies including neglect of a dependent resulting in death.
Prosecutors say Hallman called police in Oct. 2015 to report his infant son Zachary was not breathing. The boy died two days later Peyton Manning Children's Hospital in Indianapolis.
An autopsy revealed that the boy’s skull had been fractured twice.
