Infant Dead After Alleged Shaking

December 18, 2000

PITTSBURGH (AP) _ A 2-month-old girl died Monday of injuries suffered when her father allegedly shook her more than 20 times because he was annoyed by her crying, state police said.

Destiny Wynn, of Washington County, was hospitalized Saturday with a bleeding and swollen brain, hospital officials said.

Chad Willis Wynn, 21, was jailed Monday in lieu of $100,000 bail on charges of aggravated assault and child endangerment, police said. Additional charges were possible after the baby’s death, troopers said Monday.

Police said Wynn was drinking beer and watching television alone on Friday when his daughter’s crying irritated him. They said Wynn told officers the baby passed out while he was shaking her and had blood in her mouth.

The child’s mother, Shanea Wynn, later returned home and took the girl to a hospital.
