Jacob David Hartley Shook His Baby To Death For Interrupting An XBox Marathon


How addicted to XBox is Jacob David Hartley? On a recent Saturday, the Lakeland, Florida 20-year-old played video games from 10 am until 4 in the morning with just an afternoon break in the middle. Police say Hartley also became so enraged that his three-week-old son kept interrupting his marathon gaming session by crying that he shook him repeatedly while yelling, “Damn you … will you please go to (expletive) sleep?” The kid’s mom returned at 7 a.m. to find the baby dead and Hartley now faces aggravated manslaughter and child abuse charges. Miami New Times has the story.
