Injured baby dies; father may face murder charge

A baby who police say was beaten by his father died of his injuries early yesterday, and the father could be charged with murder, police said.

Julian Wielinski was 4 weeks old when his parents took him April 5 to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center s emergency room with a fractured skull and two broken ribs. Authorities said the injuries were a result of the father, Robert D. Wielinski, having lost his temper.

Mr. Wielinski, 30, of 5414 Lewis Ave., pleaded not guilty last month in Lucas County Common Pleas Court to charges of felonious assault and child endangerment.

He is being held in Lucas County jail in lieu of $200,000 bond. The mother, who police said was Mr. Wielinski s live-in girlfriend, has not been charged.
