On November 9th, J.R. is due for arraignment following charges of attempted murder, torture, and child abuse. The Los Angeles man was babysitting for his two-month-old son while his girlfriend was out. She had set up a hidden camera at the house because she suspected him of infidelity. However, when she watched the footage, she found something worse. J.R. was filmed smothering the child with his hands, swinging him in a noose fashioned from a blanket, punching him in his chest, and attempting to strangle the baby. The mother immediately brought the infant to the hospital, but the extent of his injuries have not yet been released. J.R. is currently in jail and could be facing fifteen years to life in state prison if convicted.
