In Florida, Thomas James Ludwig is charged with first-degree murder in the December death of one of his twin daughters. News stories report that Mr. Ludwig arrived home around 8:00 pm on December 20, 2008. One of his twin daughters was crying. His roommates told investigators Mr. Ludwig handled the crying baby in a manner that caused the baby’s head to hyperextend backwards, then forcefully placed the baby on the bed, called her an expletive. The roommate then reported hearing a loud banging noise and then the baby stopped crying. Approximately 10 minutes later, one of the roommates went in to check on the babies and found the infant not breathing.
The baby was transferred emergently to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa where she died the next day. An autopsy revealed the baby died of significant blunt trauma to the head with skull fractures and hemorrhage.
