Georgia Man Robert Terrell Dubose Jr, 22, Allegedly Uses Bare Hands, Breaks Baby’s Neck While Trying To Smother Prematurely Born Twin Girls For Crying
Prosecutors have charged Robert Terrell Dubose Jr., 22, with aggravated assault and two counts of cruelty to children involving excessive physical or mental pain, according to FOX 5, citing an arrest warrant obtained by the television station.
Investigators believe that Dubose inflicted “cruel or excessive physical or mental pain” on the twins while they were crying on October 3 at an apartment on Redmond Circle in Rome, Georgia, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
The state alleges that Dubose was “aggressively handling the victim with his hands causing her to have a broken neck and putting a pillow over the face of the victim and her twin sister while they were crying,” according to court documents obtained by the Rome News-Tribune.
Uncertainty surrounds the victims’ health and connection to Dubose. There are contradictory accounts as to whether the twins were born five months early or five weeks early.
According to WRGA radio, Dubose was detained by police on October 11 at his residence. The fact that Dubose was bound over for additional hearings in Floyd County Superior Court, according to records obtained by Fox News, indicates that a judge found probable cause for the accusations.
The News-Tribune reports that Dubose is being held without bond in the Floyd County Jail.
The city of Rome is located about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta.
