A Georgia man is facing charges after police say he beat his baby so severely she had to be taken to the hospital.

The father is claiming he isn’t responsible for the beating. He says evil spirits possessed his daughter.

Police were called to Juan Hernandez’s home for an unresponsive baby in April. They say she suffered respiratory failures, multiple skull fractures and other injuries.

“Kind of crazy out of the blue that something like this happened just two houses away,” neighbor Louis Iturbid said.

Hernandez told police that his baby was possessed and that he may have been as well. He believed spirits or a bad person were conducting paranormal activity to make his family suffer.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated battery and child cruelty. He has since been released on bond.
