Two Muncie residents are under arrest after their five-month-old daughter was determined to have a broken arm, two broken legs, 15 rib fractures and two skull fractures resulting in brain bleeds. According to the Star Press, the baby’s father, 24-year-old Austin Lee Choate, took the infant to IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital on Thursday for treatment.
