The DA said Hang Bin Li, 23, and Ying Li, 22, both of 43-18 Union St., were charged with the murder after allegedly violently shaking their baby daughter, Annie Li, in October, causing serious injuries that eventually led to her death.
"According to the charges, the young victim suffered severe brain and eye injuries as a result of being violently shaken and at least two non-accidental blows to the head, bleeding on the brain, two broken legs and had a healing rib fracture at the time of her death - grave physical injuries for anyone, let alone an infant less than three months of age," Brown said. "It is shocking to consider that her parents are charged with inflicting such brutality and suffering on one as young and innocent as their own child."
Hang Bin Li was charged with second-degree murder and first- and second-degree manslaughter and could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted. His wife, Ying, was charged with second-degree manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child and faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
