Teen dad accused of killing baby because he got tired of the crying

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (CBS/KUTV) -- A 2-month-old baby is dead after his 19-year-old father got tired of him crying and "exploded," KUTV reports.

On Dec. 1, Clint Nokes reported his baby son was not breathing. Despite CPR, officers could not revive the unresponsive baby, who was approximately 2 months old. The baby was rushed to Davis Hospital.

An officer interviewed Nokes, who said he was feeding the baby when he tried to burp the baby, who would not burp. Nokes says he pulled the baby away from him, and the baby went limp.

Nokes says the baby was not breathing, and saw the baby take a big gasp of air. He said he then called his girlfriend, Krista Larsen, and told her something was wrong.

According to Nokes, Larsen called their doctor, and after that Nokes called 911.

Officers contacted the hospital, who stated the baby had bruising on his head and ribs. A CT scan was done on the baby, which showed a skull fracture, bleeding on the brain, and detached retinas.
