CA - Jordan Johnson, 1 month, dies with broken bones, burns, 10 Nov 2010
By the time paramedics reached the east Bakersfield home of James Johnson Wednesday morning, his 34-day-old son, Jordan, didn't have a heartbeat.
Doctors at Kern Medical Center noticed a third-degree burn on the boy's legs and buttocks and broken limbs.
Johnson couldn't explain why his son was not taken to a hospital or how he could have received broken bones.
"I don't know how that could happen," he said. "I don't know how in the world that could happen."
Court documents indicate he has pending domestic violence cases with two of the women and a hearing over back child support.
"This doesn't sound like my son James," the senior Johnson said. "We're still trying to get to the bottom of this."

RIP little Jordan. Why would they allow this baby to go home with these people after their two children were removed? How sad!

From May 2013:
A defendant convicted of murder after inflicting numerous horrendous injuries leading to the death of his newborn son was sentenced to 25 years to life plus six years in prison...
Johnson was convicted April 9 of murder, assault on a child resulting in great bodily injury or death, willful cruelty to a child and obstructing an emergency responder... [T]he jury did not find Johnson guilty of burning the child.
Belmonte took a plea deal and was sentenced in January to 15 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter and three counts of willful cruelty to a child.
