Infant Death-Indictment
Lyman County Man Indicted on Murder Charge
The Associated Press - May 18, 2017

RAPID CITY, S.D. - A grand jury in Lyman County has indicted a man in the death of his 7-week-old daughter.

Thirty-six-year-old Gerald Brink is accused of hitting and throwing the infant. An autopsy showed the baby suffered four skull fractures and blunt force trauma to the head and died at a hospital May 4.  

Besides second-degree murder, the Vivian man was also indicted on two alternative counts of manslaughter in the first degree and a count of aggravated battery of an infant. Brink faces life in prison if convicted of either the murder or manslaughter charges.

Court documents say Brink admitted to state investigators that he struck the baby and that she hit her head on a dresser when he threw her toward her bassinet.
