The father of a Cedar Rapids 18-month old girl has been accused of causing the head trauma that eventually led to the child's death last year. The mother of the child filed a civil lawsuit against the father, as well as his girlfriend, for wrongful death and the abuse of the child.
The child was staying with her father, when employees at the child's daycare noticed bruising and bumps on the girl's head. The daycare reported the injuries to a child services center, but the girl was already dead at that point. While the father has denied charges of abuse, he has admitted to causing the head trauma that proved to be fatal for the child.
A criminal charge has not yet been filed as officials believe that they do not have enough evidence to accuse the father of the crime.
