Man accused of beating his 5-week-old son to death

I cannot imagine this person is being held with any kind of bail at all.  How does someone get so angry at a 5 week old to do this sort of thing? This is unimaginable!

Shelton Keith Alexander, 20, was booked into the county jail early in the morning on September 26th, 2009 and is being held on $1,000,000 bail.

He faces a charge of capital murder.

Dallas police say his 5-week-old son was taken Sunday to Children’s Medical Center with rib fractures, bruises to his abdomen and multiple liver lacerations. He was pronounced dead early yesterday. The Dallas County medical Examiner’s officer ruled the baby died from blunt force trauma, a police report says. During an interview at police headquarters, investigators say, Alexander admitted to detectives that he punched the baby twice in the abdominal area.

A police report says Alexander works at Pilgrim’s Pride, the chicken processing plant. He has not yet responded to a DMN request to be interviewed in jail.
