    MD - Brooke Hart, 4 mos, shaken to death, dad charged, 8 Aug 2010


    St. Mary's grand jurors have indicted a Lexington Park man on charges including second-degree murder from his infant son's death last summer, renewing a case that earlier had been dismissed.

    St. Mary's prosecutors dismissed the child abuse charge against the suspect, now 22, last November as they awaited an autopsy report. Hart's lawyer had expressed hope at that time that once prosecutors received and reviewed the autopsy report, they would decide not to further pursue the matter.

    The detective wrote in charging papers that Brian Hart admitted picking the baby up "with great force" and shaking her to get her to go to sleep, and in a separate incident, again picking her up forcefully, allowing her head to snap back.


    RIP Brooke

    From November 2012:


    A sailor from Patuxent River Naval Air Station has been sentenced to 12 years of confinement and a dishonorable discharge, Navy authorities report, at the close of a two-week court-martial following the death of his infant daughter.

    Brian Hart, a 23-year-old master-at-arms seaman, also will forfeit all pay and allowances, according to a public affairs director at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., where St. Mary’s detectives took part in the military trial that concluded Thursday afternoon with the jurors’ verdict and their decision on the penalty.
