Florida Man Who Tried to Pawn His Infant Son Says He Was Joking Pixabay

A man is behind bars on multiple charges after he allegedly broke the neck of a 3-month-old girl and tried to smother her twin sister for crying loudly in Floyd County, Georgia.

The accused, identified as 22-year-old Robert Terrell Dubose Jr., of Rome, was reportedly annoyed by the twin children crying on Oct. 3 earlier this month. Annoyed, and in a fit of rage, Dubose put a pillow over both the little girl’s faces to stop them from crying and tried to smother them to death, Fox News reported.

However, one of the 3-month-old girls suffered a broken neck from the assault. As of Thursday, Oct. 13 morning, there has not been an update issued on the current health condition of the two babies.

Dubose was arrested on Tuesday, Oct. 11, and charged with aggravated assault and two counts of first-degree cruelty to children. He was booked into the Floyd County Jail where he is being held without bond, WRGA reported.

Both girls were reportedly born five months premature.

Dubose's relationship with the twin babies has also not been disclosed.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a Millbrook man was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse after allegedly dropping his own 2-month-old infant, abusing the newborn, and brutally breaking the child's bones as punishment for "excessive crying," as previously reported.

On Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021, Children’s Hospital staff contacted Millbrook police officials and alerted them that they were treating a 2-month-old child suffering from severe head trauma indicative of an abusive household.

Marterrius C. Moore, 22, of Millbrook, reportedly told the police officers that his infant, Jamarion Moore, suffered head trauma because he accidentally dropped the infant on Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021. However, the child had multiple injuries to his head and body, including multiple fractured bones. The extent of the injuries was found to be more grievous when compared to the reason for injury that Moore mentioned.

After the Millbrook Police Department questioned Moore, he admitted to angrily injuring the child on several occasions due to the child’s excessive crying. Following this, Moore was arrested and charged with Aggravated Child Abuse. The abusive parent was then processed and transported to the Elmore County Jail.
