In Indiana, Permanent brain damage possible for baby allegedly battered by father | Shaken Baby Syndrome

A Madison County man was reportedly behind bars Tuesday night after being charged with battering his infant son.

Alan Muey, 23, reportedly declined Fox59’s request for a jail house interview, but according to the probable cause affidavit, he had a lot to say to police, including how his 4-month-old baby sustained serious injuries to his brain.

Fox59 spoke with John Moore, who was neighbors with Muey and Muey’s girlfriend, who had recently given birth to baby Tye.

"He was in and out of jobs while he was here and good kid he was a really good kid," said Moore.
However, it was reportedly no secret that the 23-year-old was struggling with serious anger issues and depression.

“I saw more of the depressed side of things because he had struggles keeping jobs," said Moore.
It was reportedly while the couple was living at the Daleville apartment complex that investigators noticed baby Tye's skull size had "expanded significantly" and was suffering from "brain bleeds.”  Investigators said the injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
According to the probable cause, Muey reportedly initially told police that his girlfriend must have injured their baby.  However, the next day, Muey changed his story, saying "the baby was fussy and he was having a hard time getting him to stop crying." Muey went on to say that "he shook the baby but didn't remember shaking him that hard."
