Parents lie in baby's death

Two parents lied about how their baby received life-ending injuries. And now the father has been charged with second degree unintentionally murder in his daughter's death.

The Star Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported on this story.

Both stories use a slightly delayed lead to tell this story. And then use a shorter sentence to turn.

The Star Tribune said:


If so, it wasn't the first time, according to court documents filed Friday.

The Pioneer Press said:

Both stories were lies, police say.

Both stories detail the original story the parents told and then get into what medical evidence said, and what the father later admitted to in an affidavit. This story is also a follow-up--the original story was about the suspicious death of this child. But the actual story is the most interesting part of this story.

Both stories go long in-depth on both parts of the story, which can be confusing if not told correctly or blurred together. This happens a little in both stories.

The Pioneer Press story includes new information because it was posted later than the Star Tribune article. But neither has been updated since.
