Baby found bleeding from mouth, Boyfriend charged with attempted murder

A 22-year-old Homestead man is behind bars Tuesday after he was charged with attempting to smother his girlfriend's 2-month old son.

Ernesto Gomez told police he tried to quiet the baby by shaking him. The baby's mother was showering Sunday when she heard loud banging noises coming from the bedroom. She got out and saw Gomez standing over the baby's bassinet, holding a pillow to it's head.

The baby was bleeding from the mouth.

Gomez faces one count each of attempted felony murder and aggravated child abuse.

He is being held without bail.
