An Indiana father who allegedly abused and shook his infant twins over two years ago was recently arrested for aggravated battery and neglect (two counts of each), according to The Herald Bulletin. According to the then 3-month-old twins' mother, she left the twins in thirty-one-year-old Antonio S. Jones' care while she was on a trip and found visible injuries on both babies when she returned. After seeing the injuries, including facial bruises, the mother took the twin brother and sister to a local hospital. Upon further medical examination, the brother was found to have blood in the whites of his eyes, bruises and wounds in his mouth, on his nose, and around his head. He was also found to have fractured arm, thigh, and tibia bones that were healing. His twin sister also had bleeding in the whites of her eyes, as well as bruising on the eyes, nose, cheeks, and mouth. She was found to have a skull fracture and many other bone fractures on her body. Due to their severe head and brain injuries, the twins were diagnosed with abusive head trauma. They are currently in their mother's custody.
