MAYS LANDING -

An Atlantic City man has now admitted to shaking his girlfriend's baby, causing the infant boy's death.

The Atlantic County Prosecutors Office says that Daquan Davis pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated manslaughter.

In return, prosecutors will recommend that he receive a 12–year sentence.

Prosecutors say the 20–year–old was caring for the 6–month–old boy while the child's mother was at work last September.

When she returned home she found the boy unresponsive.

Authorities have said the boy died from acute cerebral spinal trauma.

 

Davis said he shook the baby after becoming frustrated because it would not stop crying.

Davis must serve 85% of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
