Parents Confess to Killing Child

A deaf couple admitted through an interpreter to beating their five-month-old child to death because she wouldn’t stop crying, according to police in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, Texas. Hector Rene Cupich-Quinones and Maria Guadalupe Zuniga told police they got into an argument over the crying after a night of drinking. Cupich-Quinones confessed to shaking the baby, hitting her head against a counter, and sliding her across the counter until the infant fell head first on the tile floor. Prosecutors have charged Cupich-Quinones with capital murder.
