The face just doesn’t go with the story but…remember what Shakespeare said about trying to judge a book by its cover? “There is no art to read the mind’s construction from the face.” Behind the smile lies a heart so evil that even his 3-month old baby was not spared. Thankfully, the law had no intention of letting him fall through the cracks.
Officers stopped the Iowa-bound bus shortly after it left Newark’s Penn Station and arrested Michael Bell Jr. of Plainfield. He faces a second-degree aggravated assault charge in the attack that left the infant in grave condition, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office said in a news release.
The baby suffered from fractures and internal bleeding and is clinging to life after the 10:35 p.m. Friday attack. Bell allegedly fled the home and tried to make his bus escape the next evening when officers tracked him down.
“Unfortunately, I don’t believe that the child will recover,” Romankow said. “We’ve been advised that Zion, the baby, is in grave condition. So we’re obviously keeping a watch, and there are a lot of people, both law enforcement and not, who are praying for this child.”
