WASILLA - A Wasilla man is in jail after being indicted last week for shaking and sexually abusing his infant daughter, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Keir McGee-Vermont, 20, was indicted Thursday by a Palmer grand jury on two counts of assault and two counts of sexual abuse of a minor, troopers said.
A doctor reported swelling around the infant's eyes and brain and a tongue laceration, according to an affidavit by troopers Investigator William Zamora.
The doctor also reported that her heart and liver appeared to have been squeezed, Zamora wrote. A nurse practitioner told Zamora that the baby showed physical evidence of sexual assault.
McGee-Vermont was arrested Feb. 19 after the infant's mother alerted police. In a phone call, McGee-Vermont had told her he shook the baby and was preparing to shoot himself, according to Zamora.
McGee-Vermont told investigators he was stressed about finances and that he threw the baby onto her crib and shook her, causing her to go limp, according to Zamora.
McGee-Vermont is being held at Mat-Su Pre-Trial Facility and is set to appear in court on Monday.
