Iniubong Ebong is Convicted for Murder of his Daughter in Houston, Texas

 

December 9, 2013 Houston Texas (KHOU) — A Harris County jury found a father guilty of capital murder Monday afternoon in the death of his 5-month-old daughter.

Iniubong Ebong was convicted of hitting his baby daughter, Indya Ebong, so hard he lacerated her liver in November 2010.

The sentencing phase of the trial will begin on Tuesday.

Investigators said Ebong, who was 31 at the time of the incident, was babysitting the infant while her mother worked a double shift on Black Friday. He called the mother to say the girl needed to go to the hospital because something was wrong.

When the mother arrived, she found her daughter unresponsive and the father sound asleep. The baby was pronounced dead at the hospital. Authorities believe she had actually been dead a couple of hours before the mom arrived home.

An autopsy later determined the cause of death to be blunt force trauma to the abdomen. Her liver had been lacerated.

CPS said the family had no history of trouble at the home. They said Iniubong Ebong didn’t live with his daughter, but babysat for her sometimes.

Authorities said he first claimed he dropped the child, then later admitted he struck her because she wouldn’t stop crying.
