Nebraska News

OAKDALE, Neb. (AP) — A northeast Nebraska man is accused of injuring his 1-month-old daughter by shaking her.

Antelope County District Court records say 21-year-old Christofer Carstens is charged with intentional child abuse that caused injury. Carstens’ arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call Thursday from The Associated Press.

The records say a doctor at Antelope Memorial Hospital in Neligh (NEE’-lee) examined the infant after she was taken to the hospital on May 25. The doctor says the baby had suffered broken ribs, a broken collarbone, a broken arm, and a skull fracture.

The records say, Carstens, of Oakdale, told an investigator later that he’d shaken his daughter in frustration because she wouldn’t stop crying.
