NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 12 to 30 years in prison for severely beating his girlfriend’s 2-month-old son in New Hampshire in 2013.

Nashua police say 22-year-old Enrique Santiago of Lawrence, Massachusetts, repeatedly squeezed, slammed and shook the infant on numerous occasions while his girlfriend was at work, and once swung a pillowcase holding a tablet computer into the baby’s face.

The baby had been hospitalized in critical condition with leg and arm fractures, broken ribs and bleeding on the brain.

In court Thursday, the child’s mother, Maria Tata, said her 18-month-old son isn’t crawling, walking, standing on his own, and holding his own bottle. She said he can’t do things that other toddlers his age can do.
