Brooksville father speaks out about baby's death

Posted: Updated:
BROOKSVILLE, FL (WFLA) -

A Brooksville father said he's devastated with the death of his baby girl, while his wife is accused of her murder.

“To see my little girl like that, no parent should ever have to go through that," said Harry Weber, the baby's father.

Hernando County Sheriff's investigators were called to the Brooksville home Sunday afternoon for a 9-1-1 call. At first, 26-year-old April Weber told them she accidentally dropped her 6-week-old daughter, Aubrie.

The child was severely injured and was airlifted to St. Joseph's Hospital, where she later died of a fractured skull.

Harry Weber said he was at work when his wife called him screaming hysterically about the baby. He rushed home and called 9-1-1.

Later at the hospital, the neurosurgeon told him Aubrie's injuries couldn't have occurred from an accidental fall.

But when deputies questioned April Weber, they said she admitted she threw the baby onto the bed and she bounced off onto the floor. Then investigators say she told them she picked the child up again by the feet and threw her against a dresser.

Harry Weber said April would get frustrated caring for the baby, but he never believed she would harm their child.

April Weber has been charged with aggravated child abuse and felony first degree murder. She is being held without bond at the Hernando detention center.
