A Hillsborough County man is now charged with first degree murder after a 2-week-old infant he is accused of abusing died from its injuries.
Detectives say Aaron Bordelon, 29, abused the baby because the baby woke him up after a recent feeding.
Detectives say Bordelon admitted to picking up the baby forcefully, causing bruising under the eyes and on top of the eyelids. He said the baby’s breathing also began to slow down.
Bordelon allegedly attempted to conceal the baby’s injuries with makeup before taking the baby to Brandon Regional Hospital.
The infant passed away at the hospital.
Bordelon remains in the Falkenburg Road Jail. He is charged with one count of First Degree Murder with Great Bodily Harm or Death of a Child.
