A 26-year-old man named Isaac Hernandez had been sentenced to 27 years in jail after killing infant Sylys Hernandez, who was only 3 months’ old.
Sylys’s mother was a drug addict, and gave birth to Sylys in jail – she had hoped for a better life for him in the outside world.
The baby was entrusted to Issac, who used him as a punching bag for a period of 3 months till the infant was dead.
Previous reports of abuse surrounded Issac and Sylys, but were ignored by the local authorities.
As a result, Sylys suffered multiple rib fractures, two broken legs, a torn frenulum, as well as bruises everywhere on his body.
